On December 6, 2016, the Centre for North African and African Horn Studies of the Institute for African Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences held the roundtable "IGAD and the Role of Regional Organizations in the Resolution of Armed Conflicts".

The participants of the roundtable included researchers from the Institute for African Studies, the International Centre for African Studies (Khartoum, Sudan), Lomonosov Moscow State University, Moscow State Institute of International Relations, as well as representatives of African diplomatic missions. The themes included the role of IGAD in regional integration, its role in the settlement of the conflicts in Sudan and South Sudan, interests of global actors in the region, prospects for the establishment of a regional peacekeeping forces, etc.

The participants of the roundtable agreed that the main prerequisite for the resolution of conflict and crisis situations in Northeast Africa is concerted efforts of the governments of most of the countries of the region. The deployment and strengthening of IGAD's Regional Protection Force may serve as a serious step towards the stabilization of the region by Africans themselves.
