Why Have We Failed to Prevent Genocide?

Outline of Dr. Stanton's address to the 8th Symposium on Women and Genocide Washington, DC, October 26, 2019 When Genocide Watch and the Alliance Against Genocide were founded in 1999, there were no international organizations or international coalitions dedicated solely to the prevention of genocide. Genocide Watch and the Alliance have four goals: 1. Genocide education for policy makers, students, and the public; 2. Early warning communicated to engaged policy makers; 3. Rapid response by diplomacy, the UN or regional forces; and 4. Creation of courts and effective punishment of genocide. In the twenty years since 1999, we have made a little progress: • Genocide educat

Darfur Women Action Group: Sudan Strategy

Sudan Needs a Strategic Approach for Sustainable Change! Darfur Women Action Group (DWAG) has released a comprehensive strategy that was delivered to the interim government of Sudan, as well as to international and regional actors and stakeholders working on Sudan. DWAG’s Strategic Framework for Sustainable Change in the Republic of Sudan (the Framework), which was formulated by DWAG along with contributions from 37 experts and Sudanese civil society representatives (the Working Group) who are committed to promoting the interests of the Sudanese people, stresses the need for laying the proper foundation for sustainable transformation in Sudan. In the wake of the uprisings in Sudan and follo

The Darfur Genocide: What Will Be Remembered?

Perhaps a full history of the ongoing genocide in Darfur will one day be written. To be at all useful, it will necessarily include events from 2002 (and earlier) through the (potential) transition to civilian governance in Sudan in 2019. There is still little evidence that the dynamic new Prime Minister of Sudan, Abdallah Hamdok, will be able to rein in the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) in Darfur or halt the predations of armed Arab groups targeting non-Arab/African farmers and internally displaced persons. A role in the new Sovereign Council for RSF commander Hamdan Dagalo (“Hemeti”) seems to ensure that the RSF will remain the primary source of real power in Darfur; indeed, the Constitutional

97 Humanitarian organizations in Syria condemn Turkey's invasion

Joint Statement by 97 humanitarian organizations active in North-East Syria On Unilateral Turkish Military Intervention in the Region As active representatives of local and regional actors engaged in supporting humanitarian work within North-East Syria, the 97 signatory organizations to this statement have closely followed the developments of the Turkish military operations in North-East Syria since 9 October 2019. The affected area is home to millions of people in addition to many IDPs from other areas of the country. With growing concern, we have witnessed significant displacement since the campaign began with cross-border bombardment, as well as the direct targeting of vital infrastructur

Genocide Watch: Turkey is planning genocide and crimes against humanity in Northeastern Syria

Genocide Warning: January 17, 2018, renewed October 8, 2019 Kurds, Christians, and Yezidis in Northeast Syria are at grave risk of genocide by the armies of Turkey and Syria. The genocide will be supported by Russia and Iran. Turkey and Iran have sizable Kurdish minority populations, which they consider threats to ethnic and national unity. 100,000 Christians live in the area Turkey will invade. Turkey and its predecessor, the Ottoman Empire, have a century old history of genocide against Christians. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has announced his intention to create a “twenty-mile buffer zone” in northeastern Syria, an area now controlled by the Kurdish and Arab Syrian Democratic

Tibetans hit by the same mobile malware targeting Uyghurs

A recently revealed mobile malware campaign targeting Uyghur Muslims also ensnared a number of senior Tibetan officials and activists, according to new research. Security researchers at the University of Toronto’s Citizen Lab say some of the Tibetan targets were sent specifically tailored malicious web links over WhatsApp, which, when opened, could have stealthily gained full access to their phone, installed spyware and silently stole private and sensitive information. The exploits shared “technical overlaps” with a recently disclosed campaign targeting Uyghur Muslims, an oppressed minority in China’s Xinjiang state. Google last month disclosed the details of the campaign, which targeted iPh
