Abstract:

How do Western perceptions of Africa influence the international community?s policy-making towards African conflict? Towards examining this question, this paper will focus on the international community?s perceptions of, and policies towards, the recent violence in Darfur, Sudan (2003 to present). This case will focus on the international community?s response to the Darfur crisis during the formative months following the Sudanese Liberation Army?s (SLA) high-profile offensive in February 2003. In particular, it will examine how the popular recollections of the international community?s failure to name the Rwandan crisis of 1994 as ?genocide? has influenced international NGO and regional actor lobby efforts directed towards Western state and UN agency policy-makers today. The historical experience in Rwanda and the question of ?genocide? has provided a pivotal perceptual battle ground between different Sudanese, African and international agents in the clash over the appropriate international policy response to the Darfur crisis.
