UN Convention on Genocide

 

 The UN Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (December 1948) defines genocide as:

  “…any of a number of acts committed with the intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group: killing members of the group; causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part…”

Sudan Advocacy Groups Call for Stronger Action After Rigged Elections

sudanpoll-1In the wake of last week's fundamentally flawed elections in Sudan, Enough and other advocacy groups are calling for the Obama administration to refuse to legitimize the election results and take a firm stance to ensure peace and justice in Sudan. While the White House acknowledged yesterday that the elections did not meet international standards, it failed to demonstrate that it plans to implement a policy of pressures and consequences to avoid a return to full-scale war and prevent manipulation of the upcoming referendum on southern independence by Khartoum. Read the full statement from Enough and partner organizations.

Maggie Fick reported on the elections in a dispatch in Foreign Policy, and in an online forum hosted by PBS NewsHour discussing the political and technical problems surrounding the elections, and describing the challenges voters faced as they attempted to vote at polling stations throughout Juba. To learn more about the repercussions of the elections, watch a video discussion with John Prendergast, Omer Ismail, and Voices for Sudan's Jimmy Mulla.

Visit Enough Said for more updates and analysis of the elections, and stay tuned for an upcoming report assessing Sudan's progress toward meeting key benchmarks, to coincide with the National Security Council's second quarterly deputies meeting on Sudan policy.
