Upcoming event - The Sahara Issue: Challenges and Prospects

Monday 29 April 2019 5:30pm - 7:00pm

The Sahara conflict is one of the oldest territorial conflicts in Africa. It is a complex issue with political, historical and legal dimensions that has been, for decades, an obstacle to the regional integration in North Africa. All the attempts made over the last five decades by the United Nations to put an end to it have consistently failed.

This event is to provide an overview of this issue and to explain the current political process led by the UN to reach a just, lasting, and mutually acceptable political solution.
