Darfur Ethnocide (2003-2009)

Pp. 122-145 (24)

Fabienne Le Houérou


Five important drivers are invoked to explain the Darfur ethnocide in 2003- 2009. The economic decline of the sultanate in the 19th century, colonial negligence, Ghaddafi’s ambitions in the region in the eighties, dire droughts in the nineties, Arabian-African ethnic cleavage aggravated by famine, and finally, the harsh competition for scarce resources. This chapter provides crucial context for the conflict and crisis in Darfur.
