Chapter Summary

This chapter starts by relating the subjects discussed in the speeches to the local context, as the author understood it at the moment of recording, whilst listening to the addresses. Next, it focuses on the main subjects of these speeches, in particular on the way these were formulated and argued. In this way the author gains an insight into the goal of the moral discourse. However, the speeches clearly put the blame for the problems in Darfur on western foreigners and Darfur women, both subjects figuring prominently in author's research. The government’s discourse on Islam proved to have a profound influence on both local power relations and on author's research. Finally the author returns to the speeches and connects them to the diverse discourses to which they refer.

Keywords: Darfur women; discourse; Islam; local power relations; western foreigners
