about this item

Why do some intrastate conflicts last so much longer than others? And do external third-party interventions tend to shorten or extend civil wars? Ashraf Ali Hamed examines the crisis in Darfur, and the variety of international, regional and national bodies have intervened there. Through the prism of events in Darfur, he particularly explores how third-party interventions by neighbouring states influence conflict resolution. To this end, the book provides an in-depth analysis of Libyan foreign policy in Darfur, from the eruption of the crisis in 2003 to the collapse of the Gaddafi regime in Tripoli in 2011. It explores the underlying factors that propelled the Darfur crisis, showing how Gaddafi failed to leverage the tools and capabilities at his disposal to help end the conflict. Instead, he focused on securing the continuity and international recognition of his own regime, to the detriment of finding a quick resolution. Hamed argues that crisis management by other international bodies, such as UNAMID (United Nations Mission in Darfur) and AMIS (African Mission in Sudan), would have been swifter and more effective had Libya been isolated for intervening the way that it did. Illuminating a new and crucial dimension of the Darfur crisis, this study equally contributes to the broader fields of conflict resolution, diplomacy and international relations
