A Nobel Laureate, an Indicted War Criminal, and What They Have in Common

Note: This blog originally appeared on enoughproject.org.

 

The international community has bestowed very different labels on Aung San Suu Kyi and Omar al-Bashir: Burma’s de facto leader is a Nobel Laureate, while Sudan’s head of state is an indictee of the International Criminal Court. Today, however, as they both face worldwide condemnation, the United States is on the dangerous path to lose leverage to influence either.

U.S. News and World Report Op-ed: The Sudan Sanctions Must Stay

 

Note: This op-ed originally appeared in U.S. News and World Reportand was written by the Enough Project’s John Prendergast and Ian Schwab.

 

The continued persecution of Christians in Darfur should be a serious red flag to the Trump administration. Last week, at least five peaceful protesters in Darfur were killed by Sudanese security forces at the Kalma refugee camp. The killings took place before a provocative attempt by war crimes-indicted head of state President Omar al-Bashir to visit the camp and paint a picture of life in his country at odds with the reality of millions living in camps and caves; they are in reality desperately reliant on humanitarian assistance that is often obstructed by Bashir’s government and are continuously under the threat of government-sponsored atrocity crimes.

New Report: Breaking Out of the Spiral in South Sudan

 

Note: This blog was originally posted on enoughproject.org.

 

Today, the Enough Project published “Breaking Out of the Spiral in South Sudan: Anti-Money Laundering, Network Sanctions, and a New Peacemaking Architecture.” In this new report, authors Brian Adeba, Brad Brooks-Rubin, John Prendergast, and Jon Temin argue that the metastasizing crisis in South Sudan urgently requires a new strategy for achieving a sustainable peace. Conditions on the ground are unbearable for large swathes of South Sudan’s population and regional peacemaking efforts are not delivering results.
