Explaining Death and Atrocity in Darfur
Authors: John Hagan, Alberto Palloni
Drawing on a unique set of data – interviews with refugees – this project is examining empirically the claims of genocide in the Darfur region of Sudan. It will provide an objective and sophisticated analysis that bears directly on the question of whether the deaths in Darfur reflect genocide, counterinsurgency, or some combination of the two processes. This is a question of fundamental importance to international criminal law and will provide a point of reference on whether and how the Darfur case progresses to prosecution at the International Criminal Court. The development of sophisticated social scientific techniques for examining claims of genocide in this case may provide a set of tools to address similar questions in other contexts. The analysis will also shed light on the social and political processes that produce widespread displacement, disorder, and death such as those seen in Darfur.
