An award-winning examination of the international response to the Darfur crisis.
Richard Barltrop is an independent researcher and consultant who has travelled extensively in Sudan. He holds a PhD in International Relations from the University of Oxford.
This book examines the engagement of the international community in Darfur and Sudan more broadly in greater detail than any other study I have seen. His personal involvement with Sudan has clearly helped in regard to the many interviews he has obtained as well as the numerous unpublished materials he has accessed. The work raises many issues with regard to international engagement in situations such as that in Sudan and will be of great interest to practitioners, as well as academics and a wider concerned readership.'--Peter Woodward, Professor Emeritus, University of Reading, and author of The Horn of Africa: Politics and International Relations (I.B.Tauris, 1995) 'Conflict mediation and humanitarian aid have usually been discussed separately. In this innovative and meticulous study, Barltrop ably brings these fields together and enhances our understanding of peace processes in southern Sudan and Darfur.'--David Keen, Professor of Conflict Studies, London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) 'Richard Barltrop's elegantly written, original, scholarly and empirical study of these conflicts and the international response to the resultant humanitarian crisis is exceptional - Researchers into Sudanese affairs, policymakers and members of non-governmental organisations will find this book is essential reading'--Ahmed Al-Shahi, Research Fellow, St Antony's College, Oxford University
