Rebecca Hamilton is the author of Fighting for Darfur: Public Action and the Struggle to Stop Genocide,
a multi-year investigation into the impact of the U.S.-based citizen advocacy movement on Darfur policy.

In recent years she has conducted over 150 interviews with policy-makers on Sudan within the previous and current U.S. administration, including Colin Powell, Stephen Hadley, Jendayi Frazer and all the Sudan envoys; within the UN, including former Secretary General Kofi Annan; and within the Arab League, including Secretary General Amr Moussa. She has interviewed those deployed to Sudan with the African Union, and spoken with both the survivors and the perpetrators of the atrocities in Darfur. In partnership with the National Security Archive she has obtained the declassification of 600 cables related to U.S. policy on Sudan. A former Sudan correspondent for The Washington Post, her writing has been published in a range of outlets including Foreign Affairs, Foreign Policy, The New Republic, Newsweek, The Atlantic, Christian Science Monitor and The International Herald Tribune.

Born in New Zealand, she moved to Australia at 15. She was awarded a Knox Fellowship to attend Harvard and graduated as a joint degree student from Harvard Law School (Juris Doctor) and Harvard Kennedy School (Master of Public Policy) in 2007. Before beginning to work full-time on Fighting for Darfur she worked as a lawyer at the International Criminal Court. She currently resides in New York and is admitted to the New York bar.
