DESCRIPTION: Join Darfuri women’s rights and anti-genocide advocate Niemat Ahmadi for an in-depth look at the conflict in Sudan’s Darfur region, which, in 2004, was identified by the U.S. government as the first genocide of the 21st century. It will begin with an overview of the history of Darfur, with an emphasis on the root causes of conflict in the region. It will then delve into recent developments in Darfur, with a focus on aspects of the current situation that are underreported but crucial for advocates to know about, such as the impact of the conflict on women in the region. Finally, the webinar will discuss concrete steps that need to be taken by policymakers and advocates alike to address continued threats to peace, stability, and civilian protection in Darfur.
