Is a national dialogue a solution to South Sudan's quest for Peace?

The idea of a national dialogue in South Sudan has attracted considerable optimism as it has raised pessimism. Some see viable hope in the national dialogue initiative while the opposition reportedly called the move “bogus.” Supporters of the dialogue see it as an opportunity to resuscitate failed peace talks whilst giving chance to all South Sudanese to participate in the process of bargaining for peace. In this keynote address, Yusuf Kiranda explored the prospects of a national dialogue in restoring peace and civility in South Sudan.
