E8: Was the World Silent?

The defense is arguing that Lundins business in Sudan was accepted by the international community. The UN did not intervene, nor did the EU. Is that true? Was the world silent? 

We decided to take a closer look at who spoke out to stop the atrocities and who kept quiet. We also discuss how the different actors are responding today in the current civil war that is tearing Sudan apart. 


  • Nicholas Coghlan, ex Canadian diplomat who has served both in Sudan and in South Sudan, author of two books about his experiences from that time Far in the Waste Sudan and Collapse of a Country: A Diplomat’s Memoir of South Sudan
  • Marina Peter, founder of the European Coalition on Oil in Sudan, that published the report, Unpaid Debt
