The Sudanese people are facing an unprecedented humanitarian crisis due to the internal conflict between the Sudanese army and the Rapid Support Forces.
Given the current situation, human rights violations have spread in Sudan, including the killing and injury of many civilians, and the humanitarian crisis that citizens were already suffering from, including malnutrition, disease outbreaks and displacement, have exacerbated.
The current situation has worsened due to negative impacts of the conflict on the economic and social conditions of Sudan, which threatens the future for the Sudanese people.
In this context, Arab Organisation for Human Rights in the UK will be holding a webinar to shed light on the current situation in Sudan and to explore means to put an end to this conflict.
The webinar will bring together prominent experts, academics, activists, journalists and researchers to discuss practical solutions to protect the Sudanese people.
