The ongoing conflict in the Darfur region of western Sudan has produced one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world. By some estimates, genocidal acts have claimed as many as 400,000 lives, with more than 2 million people displaced. Refugees continue to flee into neighboring Chad and humanitarian agencies report more difficulties in assisting people in desperate need. Brookings experts continue to examine the deteriorating situation in Darfur and current policy options for the region.
