Sample text

The book draws on a wide range of sources, some specific to Sudan, others from the academic field of international relations and literature on conflict resolution, mediation and humanitarian action. The primary sources include some 80 interviews which I carried out mainly in Sudan 10 DARFUR AND THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY and Kenya (including at the CPA talks), but also in Britain, Egypt and the USA, with people whose perspectives on the subject required to be heard. I conducted the majority of these interviews for a doctoral thesis on which this book is based.

Typically these are donor governments and organisations, and foreign diplomats and aid officials, all of whom may be involved in decisions about political and humanitarian responses to internal conflicts. 14 Foreign and international policy towards Sudan from the 1980s through to 2009 received some attention. Until the Darfur conflict, this attention usually revolved around international security issues, such as Cold War competition in the Horn of Africa, and the threat that the war in Sudan posed to regional stability.

Reflecting this, it was from Egypt and the Red Sea that the most decisive external forces to enter Sudan in its modern history first came: in 1820–1 Mohammed Ali Pasha launched the Turco-Egyptian conquest, under the command of his son Ismail. This established the territorial basis of what became, after the 1881–5 Mahdiyya 14 DARFUR AND THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY War, the Mahdist state. In turn, after the British invasion and capture of Khartoum in 1898, this became the Anglo-Egyptian Condominium of Sudan, until in 1956 it became the independent state of Sudan.
