"Darfur: Assessing the Assessments"
The ‘iconic’ status of Darfur raises important questions for how local, regional, national and international forces intersect to produce knowledge about complex events. Assessments of the Darfur crisis have been used to demand humanitarian intervention, to defend inaction, to campaign for legal redress and to justify political, social and military interventions. This seminar seeks in a multi-disciplinary manner to assess the assessments. This is to say it proposes to evaluate current understandings of the causes,consequences, and humanitarian interventions of the Darfurian situation roughly since 1980, with an emphasis on the current situation.
This event is free of charge and will take place on Thursday 27 & Friday 28 May 2010 in Samuel Alexander Building LG12 at The University of Manchester (building 67 on the campus map http://www.manchester.ac.uk/medialibrary/maps/campusmap.pdf ) Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your place.
