Mahmood Mamdani on Darfur on Democracy Now!http://www.democracynow.org/article.pl?sid=07/06/04/1334230
In this interview, Professor Mahmood Mamdani expounds on the ideas he expressed in an article entitled "The Politics of Naming: Genocide, Civil War, Insurgency", which appeared in Vol. 29 No. 5 of The London Review of Books, dated 8 March 2007.
The article accuses the Save Darfur coalition and Nikolas Kristoff of depoliticizing the conflict in Darfur to give Save Darfur campaigners the moral high ground, unify diverse constituencies in a single-issue campaign and to make the Darfur conflict part of the War on Terror.
