Rwanda and Darfur Compared

From the German Law Journal HT: Milts File

An excellent article

Genocidal Politics and Racialization of Intervention: From Rwanda to Darfur and Beyond

From the Conclusion,

“My modest aim in this paper has been to explore to what extent, if at all, the Rwandan genocide positively affected international response to similar or comparable tragedies in Africa. That is, whether the international community would react any differently today. Using the ongoing Darfur crisis, the paper demonstrates that international attitude to Rwandan genocide was the norm and not the exception as far as responses to tragedies in Africa are concerned.”
