S2331: Congo 101 in Splash! Spring 2012 (Apr. 21 - 22, 2012)
The violence in the Congo has amounted to the deadliest conflict since World War II, and yet it has received very little international attention. If you are interested in human rights, politics, international relations, or Africa, come to this class! We will go over some of the basics of what has been happening in Congo, what we at Stanford are doing to help, and ideas for future improvements.

In 2005, the Comprehensive Peace Agreement ended a 20-year civil war between Northern and Southern Sudan. As part of the peace agreement, Southern Sudan will have the choice to secede come 2011. How will the results of the referendum affect stability in the region? Is South Sudan prepared to govern itself? How will oil resources be distributed? What effects will this have on Darfur? We will explore potential outcomes and focus on what students and the international movement as a whole can do to prepare.
