Darfur Abandoned

The conflict that erupted in Sudan’s Darfur region a decade ago was at first largely ignored. Then it was the subject of intense media coverage and an unprecedented campaign of grassroots citizen activism. Then it was ignored again. The only constant? The suffering of the people of Darfur.

Please join us and a panel of distinguished journalists for a discussion of media coverage of Darfur over the past 10 years, how citizen activists and governments in Khartoum and Washington influenced reporting, and lessons to be learned.


Introductory remarks: Ambassador Dane F. Smith, former U.S. Senior Advisor on Darfur
Moderated by: Jon Sawyer, Executive Director of the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting
Panel: James Copnall, Rebecca Hamilton, Isma’il Kushkush, and Emily Wax

Reception will follow the panel. Seating is limited. RSVP by March 18 to rsvp@pulitzercenter.org
