Chapter Summary

The Abuja peace talks had collapsed in December 2004 due to new attacks and offensive operations by the Sudanese military. The situation in Darfur escalated and even Advanced Mission in Sudan (AMIS) became involved, suffering casualties from aerial bombings. The United States introduced a lengthy draft resolution in February, which included a proposal for a UN peacekeeping mission in the south and preparations for sanctions on the perpetrators in Darfur. This chapter discusses the following topics: peacekeeping in Sudan and Darfur, sanctions on individual perpetrators in the Darfur conflict, and international criminal prosecution. The Resolution 1591 adopted on 29 March 2005 and sponsored by the United States concerned individual-targeted sanctions and travel bans on members of the Sudanese government. The Resolution 1593 on 31 March 2005, sponsored by the UK, referred the situation of Darfur since 1 July 2002 to the International Criminal Court.
