Protection of civilians in African peace missions: the case of the African Union Mission in Sudan, Darfur

23 08 2007

URL: This paper by the Institute for Security Studies (ISS) examines the problems of civilian protection created by the war in Darfur, focusing on the role of African Union Mission in Sudan (AMIS) and the challenges it has encountered in protecting civilians in Darfur. The paper argues for the strengthening of the AU force in the context of the UN support and the fast-tracking of the peace process within Darfur between Khartoum and the Darfur rebels. It also draws attention to the need for dialogue between Khartoum and its neighbours.
