Darfur's deepening conflict

IRIN, Stephen Graham

Violence in Sudan's Darfur has surged to levels not seen in a decade, with more than 150,000 people driven from their homes this year alone. The region's long-suffering residents are also bearing the brunt of a measles epidemic. It is a conflict to which the international community appears to have no answer and which risks being overshadowed by other crises in East Africa and beyond. The humanitarian and security challenges are vast, writes Stephen Graham.

Conflict, climate change and politics

HPG working paper, Levine, Peters &Fan

This working paper form ODI is based on analysis of three cases; Aceh, East Africa and Darfur. The three case studies show that, when disciplines are used techno-centrically and in the absence of sophisticated political analysis, there are significant risks that interventions designed to support resilience may do more harm than good.

Sudan's spreading conflict: the limits of Darfur's peace process

International Crisis Group, Africa Report No211

The violence in Darfur spiked in 2013. Recent fighting has displaced nearly half a million additional civilians - in all 3.2 million Darfurians need humanitarian help. If Darfur is to have durable peace, all parties to the country's multiple conflicts need to develop a more coherent means of addressing both local conflicts and nationwide stresses, the latter through a comprehensive national dialogue; eschew piecemeal approaches; embrace inclusive talks; and recommit to Sudan's unity.

The disappearance of Sudan? Life in Khartoum for citizens without rights

International Refugee Rights Initiative, May 2013

For decades, marginalisation and neglect of the newly independent state of South Sudan, the (now) five Darfur states, and Southern Kordofan state by the government of Sudan has led to conflicts which, in turn, have further exacerbated the economic, political and cultural marginalisation. Millions have moved to Khartoum in search of services and safety. This working paper explores their experiences.

Allahu Akbar: A Friday in Khartoum
I am sipping to my coffee as I am listening to the local imam through the loudspeaker as he addresses his congregation inside the mosque.

Ikke mer fred å få
Ingen viktige fredsavtaler er inngått i verden de siste åtte årene. De fleste «intern-konflikter» er ikke det de gir seg ut for å være. De er deler av internasjonale konfliktsystemer der eksterne aktører spiller helt sentrale roller, skriver Gunnar M. Sørbø i en utenriksanalyse i Morgenbladet.
