Preventing genocide: From rhetoric to action

In Sudan’s Darfur region, as elsewhere in the world, the international community “must take bold, decisive measures to ensure that genocide does not take place,” affirmed the UN’s special adviser on the prevention of genocide, Mr. Juan Mendez, on 7 April. Commenting on the anniversary of the start of the Rwanda tragedy a dozen years earlier, he added: “We cannot claim to have learned the lessons of the 1994 Rwanda genocide, if our action in the face of genocidal violence remains half-hearted.”
