Abstract:In July and August 2004, a multinational team of investigators, the Darfur Atrocities Documentation Team (ADT), travelled to various points along the Chad/Sudanese border to interview some of the two hundred thousand refugees from the Darfur region of Sudan. Its purpose was to collect data that would enable the US State Department to determine whether the mass violence directed by government of Sudan troops and Arab militia against black African tribes constituted genocide. This collective volume is comprised of essays that present an overview and analysis of the Darfur Atrocities Documentation Project, paying attention to its genesis, implementation, significance and key findings. Its contributors include US government and NGO officials involved in the genesis of the project as well as the analysis of the data; those who were involved in designing the project; investigators who served on the ADT; and several scholars. Contributors: Kelly Dawn Askin, Nina Bang-Jensen, Gerald Caplan, Robert O. Collins, Jerry Fowler, Stefanie Frease, Jonathan P. Howard, Stephen A. Kostas, Eric Markusen, Andrew S. Natsios, Helge Niska, Taylor B. Seybolt, Gregory H. Stanton, Scott Straus, and Samuel Totten. [ASC Leiden abstract]
