Death in Darfur: The Science of Human Rights, War Crimes, and Humanitarian Emergencies

Summer 2007

Researching Law, Vol. 18, No. 3

Since it began in 2003, the conflict in Darfur has dominated the news. However, information gathering in Darfur is hampered by many logistical and technical factors, but also by the volatile internal political situation and the intricacies of international relations. In the article “Death in Darfur,” which appeared in the Sept. 15, 2006 issue of Science Magazine, ABF’s John Hagan and co-author Alberto Palloni nevertheless worked with the available data to arrive at the first scientifically rigorous estimate of the death toll in Darfur. This edition of Researching Law takes an in-depth look into the article’s findings.
