Protecting the dispossessed : a challenge for the international community by Francis Mading Deng( Book )

12 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 722 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An estimated 25 million to 30 million people worldwide are internally displaced - a significantly larger population than the 18 million refugees. Victims of civil wars, forced relocation, communal violence, natural and ecological disasters, and gross violations of human rights, they desperately need food, shelter, safety, basic health care, and other necessities. In March 1992 Francis Deng was appointed Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General to study this harrowing situation. Here he presents a powerful personalized version of his official report to the United Nations, examining the causes and consequences of internal displacement, the legal standards for protection and assistance, enforcement mechanisms, the prevailing conditions in the affected countries, and the urgent need for an international response. In a compelling first-person narrative, Protecting the Dispossessed follows Deng's investigation and is based on interviews and information from governments, international organizations, individuals, and visits to countries in Europe, Africa, and Latin America. Deng argues that national sovereignty entails a responsibility to ensure the safety and welfare of the citizens and to protect fundamental human rights. When nations cannot or will not meet that responsibility, the international community must uphold this standard and make violators accountable. While he acknowledges that steps are being taken in the right direction, there is still much to be done. He presents a bold proposal, one that requires substantial change in the international system, in the politics of major governments, and in the relations between states

War of visions : conflict of identities in the Sudan by Francis Mading Deng( Book )

14 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 629 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

War of Visions sheds light on the anomalies of the identity conflict and presents competing models: the Arab-Islamic mold of the North, representing two thirds of the country in territory and population, and the remaining Southern third, which is indigenously African in race, ethnicity, culture, and religion, with an educated Christianized elite. But although the North is popularly defined as racially Arab, the people are a hybrid of Arab and African elements, with the African physical characteristics predominating in most tribal groups
Masses in flight : the global crisis of internal displacement by Roberta Cohen( Book )

14 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 604 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book analyzes the causes and consequences of displacement, including its devastating impact both within and beyond the borders of affected countries. It sets forth strategies for preventing displacement, a special legal framework tailored to the needs of the displaced, more effective institutional arrangements at the national, regional, and international levels, and increased capacities to address the protection, human rights, and reintegration and development needs of the displaced."--BOOK JACKET
The challenges of famine relief : emergency operations in the Sudan by Francis Mading Deng( Book )

11 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 588 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For nearly a decade, international efforts to combat famine and food shortages around the globe have concentrated on the critical situations in sub-Saharan Africa. In the Sudan, the largest country in Africa, prolonged drought, complicated by civil strife and debilitating economic problems, has caused widespread human suffering. The Sudan illustrates the proverbial worst-case scenario in which urgent food needs have been denied, food has been used as a weapon, and outside assistance has been obstructed. The Challenges of Famine Relief focuses on the two famine emergencies in the Sudan in the 1980s - the great African drought-related famine of 1984-86 and the conflict-related famine that afflicted the southern Sudan in 1988-91. Francis Deng and Larry Minear analyze the historical and political setting and the response by Sudan authorities and the international community. The book outlines four problem areas exemplified in the response to each crisis: the external nature of famine relief, the relationship between relief activities and endemic problems, the coordination of such activities, and the ambivalence of the results. The authors identify the many difficulties inherent in providing emergency relief to populations caught in circumstances of life-threatening famine. They show how such famine emergencies reflect the most extreme breakdown of social order and present the most compelling imperatives for international action. Deng and Minear also discuss how the international community, alerted by the media and mobilized by the Ethiopian famine, moved in to fill the moral void left by the government and how outside organizations worked together to pressure Sudan's political authorities to be more responsive to these tragedies. Looking ahead, the authors highlight the implications for future involvement in humanitarian initiatives in a new world order. As recent developments in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union demonstrate, such humanitarian challenges of global dimensions are no longer confined to third world countries. As the international community apportions limited resources among a growing number of such challenges, more effective responses to crises such as those described in this book are imperative
Sovereignty as responsibility : conflict management in Africa by Francis Mading Deng( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors present a framework that should guide both national governments and the international community in discharging their respective responsibilities. They develop broad principles by examining identity as a potential source of conflict, governance as a matter of managing conflict, and economics as a policy field for conflict prevention. Considering conflict management, political stability, economic development, and social welfare as functions of governance, they also develop strategies, guidelines, and roles for its responsible exercise. Approaching conflict management from the perspective of the responsibilities of sovereignty provides a framework for evaluating government accountability. It proposes standards that guide performance and sharpen tools of conflict prevention rather than simply making post hoc judgments on success or failure. The authors demonstrate that sovereignty as responsibility is both a national obligation and a global imperative
The forsaken people : case studies of the internally displaced( Book )

10 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The coerced displacement of people within the borders of their own countries by armed conflicts, internal strife, and systematic violations of human rights has become a pervasive feature of the post-cold war era." "This book contains case studies of ten countries or regions that have suffered severe problems of internal displacement: Burundi, Rwanda, Liberia, and the Sudan in Africa; the former Yugoslavia and the Caucasus in Europe; Tajikistan and Sri Lanka in Asia; and Colombia and Peru in the Americas. The editors and contributors offer strategies and recommendations for action."--Jacket

A strategic vision for Africa : the Kampala movement by Francis Mading Deng( Book )

16 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book chronicles the efforts, made manifest in the Kampala Principles, of a determined group working to solve Africa's complex problems. In 1989 Olusegun Obasanjo, then Nigerian head of state and now the democratically elected president, organized the first of many forums that resulted in the Kampala Principles, a document providing a framework for workable political and economic development in Africa. Taking the Helsinki Document of 1975 as their model, participants in the several forums settled on seven key tenets geared toward the adoption of a new and comprehensive politico-economic regime on the continent. They also created a longer declaration of norms and principles."--Jacket
Darfur diaries : stories of survival by Jen Marlowe( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In November 2004 three independent filmmakers traveled to eastern Chad and crept across the border into Darfur. Improvising as they went, they spoke with dozens of Darfurians, learning about their history, hopes, fears, and the resilience and tragedy of their everyday lives"--Page 4 of cover
African reckoning : a quest for good governance( Book )

9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book investigates how changing norms of sovereignty may promote better governance in Africa. It begins by tracing the evolution of the concept of sovereignty and the way, in the post-cold war era, it has been redefined to emphasize the responsibility of the state to manage conflict and protect human rights. African Reckoning includes assessments of how African nations measure up to the idea of sovereignty as responsibility. The book also examines the question of accountability at regional and international levels."--BOOK JACKET. "The authors conclude that since the power of oppressed people to hold their governments accountable is very limited, the international community has a responsibility to provide victims of internal conflict and gross violations of human rights with essential protection and assistance."--Jacket

Critical choices : the United Nations, networks, and the future of global governance by Wolfgang H Reinicke( Book )

19 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After an introduction on the challenges of globalization, world economic & political liberalization, and the activities of global public policy (GPP) networks, chapter 2 reviews the two global forces transforming the world: economic & political liberalization and technological change. The chapter then considers the impacts of this transformation and discusses the operational & participatory gaps that have emerged in global governance and have challenged national & international public institutions in a fundamental way. Chapter 3 presents empirical evidence confirming the relevance of GPP networks in taking on the challenges identified in chapter 2. Core functions that such networks perform are examined based on case studies. Chapter 4 identifies several critical managerial issues common to almost all GPP networks and distils the lessons learned from existing cases. Chapter 5 discusses the role of the United Nations with respect to GPP networks and highlights some choices the UN could make to successfully engage in GPP networks

Sudan at the brink : self-determination and national unity by Francis Mading Deng( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this brief but comprehensive book, Francis Deng offers a creative analysis of the situation, aimed at addressing, and hopefully resolving, the complex dilemmas confronting Sudan, Africa, and the international community over the critical choice the South will make in January 2011--unity or secession. This book is a powerful statement by an individual who is deeply concerned about the plight of his people and the destiny of his country, a man who, in many ways, symbolizes the lofty aspirations for unity in which diversity is seen as a source of enrichment and not of destructive conflict, a unity of full equality among all its citizens. -- Description from (Jan. 25, 2012)
