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.

Continued international support to the failed Darfur peace agreement is actually making matters worse in Darfur.

This note from one of the leading authorities on the area, while not giving a definitive answer to the issue of Panthou/Heglig, concludes that any government or international body that declared that Heglig is 'internationally recognized' as part of Sudan has been premature at best and prejudicial to a final resolution at worst.

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.
