Abstract:In this article, the author examines the interaction between the crisis in Darfur (Sudan) and developments in Chad through its increasingly complicated ethnic threads and he explains how Chad slid back into authoritarianism in 2004. Factionalism broke down the mesh of ethnic politics into personalized rule and allegiances. The international response to the crisis in Darfur allowed the Chadian leadership to reinforce its position in the country. Since then, a precarious equilibrium has set in. Déby has become the longest-serving president in the history of modern Chad. Previously weakened by interfactional agreements and oil wealth expectations and later by the crisis in Darfur, the regime re-established internal and external means for preserving the status quo.
