Assignment Question

Examine the escalating violence in Sudan, with a specific focus on the Darfur region. The paper will explore the various factors that have contributed to the perpetuation of violence in the country. Analyze the impact of failed peacekeeping efforts, highlighting how ineffective peacekeeping missions have hindered the resolution of conflicts and exacerbated the violence in Sudan. Delve into the consequences of hybrid intervention, interactive dignity, and the issues of legitimacy and insecurity that have further worsened the situation. Explore the ongoing conflict in Darfur, investigating its origins, the role of various opposing factions, and its manifestations in different regions of Sudan. The legitimacy of the government and resistance committee will be examined, shedding light on their impact on the violence. Evaluate the colonial impact on ethnic division in Sudan, considering how historical interventions and power dynamics have contributed to the current state of violence and conflict. Furthermore, include the recent war between the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) led by Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) under the leadership of Hemedtil. To support the analysis, draw on scholarly sources, including Agbiboa’s “Mobility, Mobilization, and Counter/Insurgency: The Routes of Terror in an African Context,” Autesserre’s “The Trouble with the Congo: Local Violence and the Failure of International Peacebuilding,” and Weigand’s “Waiting for Dignity: Legitimacy and Authority in Afghanistan.” Feel free to compare to nearby conflict-inflicted countries and statistics.
