Sudan: Is there any leverage left?

From The Multilateralist, David Bosco: I spoke recently with Rebecca Hamilton, author of Fighting for Darfur, an engrossing account of the influential Darfur activist movement and its impact on Sudan policy. In the book, she melds the story of these activists with developments on the ground in Sudan, often reported personally. Her account is nuanced and, at times, quite critical. She credits the movement with generating resources and attention but argues that the intense rhetorical focus on genocide also had the effect of reducing policy options and, in some moments, mischaracterizing the situation on the ground. Hamilton returned to Sudan recently to report on developments in South Kordofan and the disputed town of Abyei. Read the interview as it appeared.
