The Darfur Atrocities Documentation Project
Totten, Samuel
Social Education, v68 n7 p438 Nov-Dec 2004
One of the many important aspects of the Darfur Atrocities Documentation Project was that it set a precedent for what the U.S. and/or other nations can, and should do, when future cases of potential genocide arise. Far too often in the recent past, the international community (the United Nations, individual governments, many nongovernmental agencies, and the general public) has relied on journalistic accounts to gain a sense of whether genocide was being carried out in a particular region of the world. However, the latter reports were often sporadic and contradictory. The author of this article was a member of the Darfur Atrocities Documentation Project that recently conducted research among refugees in Chad to determine whether genocide was being perpetrated in Darfur. He paints a very grim picture of atrocities and ethnic cleansing in the region, and urges immediate international action to prevent genocide.
