The student-led movement to end mass atrocities.

Sudan

Our Take

The Sudanese government has orchestrated brutal violence against its people in multiple regions of the country. In Darfur, the Sudanese army and government-supported militias launched a counterinsurgency over a decade ago that quickly became a genocidal campaign against Darfuri civilians. The Sudanese government has also responded to rebel groups in Blue Nile and South Kordofan states with extensive attacks on civilians. While the U.S. government lacks significant leverage over the Sudanese government, it should enforce sanctions on the Sudanese government, pressure China and Qatar to reduce their support for the Sudanese government, push for safe and effective delivery of humanitarian aid, and ensure an effective peacekeeping presence to protect Sudanese civilians.
