American Research Center in Egypt Public Lecture

Fred H. Lawson, Professor of Government Emeritus of Mills College, will be presenting Conflict over the Nile: Recent Developments Regarding an Ancient Fear on June 24, 2023 at 2:00 ET.

Egypt has for centuries feared that the waters of the Nile River might be siphoned off or blocked, leaving its people thirsting and its farmlands parched. This potential threat has become an actual danger at several historical moments. The Grand Renaissance Dam project triggered a decade of negotiations among Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia, yet the fourth and largest stage in the filling of the dam’s reservoir is scheduled to take place in August 2023. Situating current developments in the context of the institutions and practices that govern the distribution of this vital resource can enhance our understanding of the dispute and the prospects for its resolution.
