This Human Rights Discussion Paper was prepared by Allison S. Cohen. She is the International Human Rights Officer of the Jacob Blaustein Institute (JBI) for the Advancement of Human Rights at the American Jewish Committee. This paper discusses the dimensions of the current situation in Darfur and the international response to it, in an effort to clarify whether the measures taken are commensurate with the need. Updating JBI's earlier Discussion Paper, it also recommends actions that can be taken at this time.
