The next two interviews examine chiefly two questions. What went wrong with the Darfur Peace Agreement signed last May? And under what circumstances could a "robust" peacekeeping force improve conditions for civilians in Darfur? Some of the answers from de Waal and Power may surprise you.

Interview with Alex de Waal on Darfur:
Taking Stock of Diplomatic Initiatives for Peace (transcript). Posted on Saturday 2 December 2006.

Alex de Waal is an anthropologist and activist in African affairs whose book, Darfur: a Short History of a Long War, co-written with Julie Flint, offers one of the clearest glimpses of this hemorrhaging western part of Sudan. He shows the origins of today’s conflict and of the so-called “Janjaweed” who continue to terrorize farming villages in a brutal campaign of ethnic cleansing.

The Darfur Dairies

Interview with Jen Marlowe on how "The Darfur Diaries" reveal who the people of Darfur are. Interview December 2006, Sprouts.

Darfur Diaries, Message from Home, film created by Adam Shapiro, Jen Marlowe, and Aisha Bain, promotes activism on Darfur. Jen Marlowe was part of a team of three indy cinematographers who, apalled by the blackout of news coverage of Darfur in 2004, journeyed to Darfur themselves and produced the film, Darfur Diaries. Marlowe describes that experience, as well as the semi-nomadic lifestyle she has chosen that enables her to pursue human rights causes in Afghanistant, the Balkans, and Palestine. Her fellow cinematographers Aisha Bain and Adam Shapiro are similarly involved in human rights issues.
