Addressing crimes against humanity and “ethnic cleansing” in Darfur, Sudan

A briefing paper to the U.N. Security Council

Legacy PDF:

The current dire humanitarian crisis in Darfur has been caused by massive, systematic violations of international human rights and humanitarian law constituting crimes against humanity committed by the Sudanese Government and its ethnic militia, the Janjaweed. These crimes have violently driven more than one million people from their homes; untold thousands have died or suffered grievously as a result of massacres, rapes, starvation, and disease.
