“Prevention of Genocide and Mass Atrocities in Africa: The Case of the Two Sudans”

The permanent representative of South Sudan to the United Nations, who caries a humanitarian background spanning back to the 1960s, Francis M. Deng, Ph.D., has a history in conflict management, human rights and the prevention of genocide. In 2007, Dr. Deng was selected by U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon as his special adviser on the prevention of genocide at the level of under-secretary-general. He also served from 1992-2004 as representative of the U.N. secretary-general on internally displaced persons. In 2011, Foreign Policy magazine named him one of its Top 100 Global Thinkers, the same year he was appointed Permanent Representative from South Sudan to the United Nations. 

Lecture is part of Adelphi’s university-wide Ambassador Lecture Series, co-sponsored by the International Leadership Coordinating Committee and Departments of Political Science.
