Beyond 'Janjaweed': Understanding the Militias of Darfur (HSBA Working Paper 17)

Julie Flint
Working Paper

Beyond 'Janjaweed': Understanding the Militias of Darfur is not a comprehensive account of the scores of tribal militias that have been armed by, or cooperated with, the government. Its subject is not the human rights violations committed in the course of the counterinsurgency. Rather, it seeks to disentangle the militias and to begin to understand their motivations and grievances. It argues that without engaging the Darfur Arabs there cannot be a sustainable resolution of the conflict.
