How the Sudan crisis will affect the MENA Region


For almost a month, Sudan has become a battleground for rival armed factions. Despite multiple ceasefire attempts and international calls for a resolution, the spiral of violence worsens by the day, heightening the risk of potential spillovers beyond the country’s borders and threatening regional stability. This event provides expert analysis and insights into the implications of the ongoing crisis in Sudan on the Middle East and North Africa region, as well as how the conflict affects the interests of the main MENA actors active in the country.
