The Special Assignment programme focuses on high-level political processes in the Horn of Africa, Sudan and South Sudan. In close cooperation with the African Union and the German Federal Foreign Office, the programme facilitates dialogue processes between conflict stakeholders in support of finding sustainable solutions to the region’s conflicts. The regional engagement started in 2014 with efforts to support the National Dialogue in Sudan.
