World Pushing Darfur Peacekeeping Operation to Brink of Failure

New report finds peacekeepers lacking support and failing to protect civilians

(KAMPALA, July 28) The failure of world leaders to keep their promises on peacekeeping has condemned millions of Darfurians to more fear and suffering, without protection from violence, according to a new report released today by the Darfur Consortium, a coalition of more than 50 African and international human rights and civil society organisations. 

The report, Putting People First: The Protection Challenge Facing UNAMID in Darfur, reviews the performance of the Darfur peacekeeping force (UNAMID) in the six months since it was deployed. Based on interviews with Darfurians, experts and aid workers, it depicts a force hamstrung by lack of equipment, training and uniformed personnel, and by its own shortcomings, and concludes that many Darfurians feel no safer than they did before the force arrived.

The report points out that UNAMID is being set up to fail and calls on the international community, and in particular the Security Council, to take stronger action to ensure that UNAMID is able to deploy effectively.
