Board Members George Clooney and John Prendergast Joint Op-Ed: "We can prevent the next Darfur"

If you had had the opportunity three months ahead of time to prevent Darfur's genocide, what would you have done?

 

The world faces such an opportunity today. On Jan. 9, just 84 days from now, the people of southern Sudan and of the disputed region of Abyei -- which straddles northern and southern Sudan -- will vote in referendums on self-determination. If held freely and fairly, these votes will result in an independent, oil-rich Southern Sudan. If not, the catastrophic war between the north and the south that ended in 2005, after 2.5 million deaths, could resume.

Red Flags in DR Congo’s Electoral Process: Time for Consequences

 

Note: This blog originally appeared on enoughproject.org.

Although the government of the Democratic Republic of Congo promised to hold elections by the end of this year, there are strong warning signs that a credible democratic transition is at risk. Now is a key moment for the United States, African states, and Europe to influence that process and get the country back on track. In its 58-year history, the Democratic Republic of the Congo has yet to have a peaceful transfer of power through democratic elections. Current President Joseph Kabila’s term of office expired in December 2016, but his government has repeatedly failed to hold elections. Each time the Kabila administration delays elections, it trots out a smoke screen of technical excuses, and some of these are the government’s own making. The true reason Congo has not held elections is lack of political will – because the will rests principally with the financial interests of those in power.

Don't Remove Sudan From the Terrorism List

 

Note: This op-ed originally appeared on U.S. News and was written by John Prendergast.

 

After removing long-standing comprehensive sanctions against the government of Sudan, the United States is considering next steps on the path to full normalization of relations, driven by the U.S. intelligence community's belief that such a development would enhance U.S.-Sudan intelligence cooperation. However, moving at this time towards normalization ignores critical developments and new circumstances that affect core U.S. national security interests.
