Sudan's Darfur Headed Backwards

 Foreign Policy posted on 30 December 2021 a commentary titled "How to Stop Darfur's Descent into Darkness" by Volker Perthes, UN special representative for Sudan.

More than 400,000 people have been displaced in Darfur this year and there has been a sharp increase in sexual violence.  The UN peacekeeping mission has ended and been replaced by a smaller political mission.  The UN effort needs more support if it is to maintain peace.
