DARFUR REVIEW is a monthly selection of Arab official, journalistic and academic sources that are compiled to give an overview of the main events, opinions and documents on Darfur from the perspective of the Arab world.
The main objective of the newsletter is to bridge the language gap the between Arab media and western audiences. This initiative takes place within the context of FRIDE’s project “The Gap between Narratives and Practices. Darfur: Responses from the Arab world” and is funded by the Ford Foundation.
In this sixth issue (August 2009) Darfur Review focuses on, among other topics, the humanitarian situation in the region; the role of Egyptian diplomacy and Libya’s leader and President of the Africa Union (AU) Qaddafi in the process; and the US president's efforts to include Cairo and Tripoli in the Doha framework.
