Abstract:The international community is still failing to discharge its responsibilities to the people of Darfur (Sudan). The essays in this collective volume suggest why this is the case, and they make provisions for what can and should be done now. Following the Introduction, by David Mephan and Alexander Ramsbotham, Suliman Baldo addresses the African response to Darfur since 2003. Next, Mukesh Kapila focuses on the inadequacy of the international response to Darfur, particularly during 2003 and 2004. Jim Terrie's contribution considers the military and other options currently available to the international community for addressing the crisis in Darfur and providing more effective protection for civilians. Alex de Waal then looks at the negotiations process that led to the Darfur Peace Agreement in May 2006. Finally, David Mephan and Alexander Ramsbotham provide some brief conclusions, identifying six lessons about civilian protection to be applied to future Darfur-like situations. [ASC Leiden abstract]
