Title: 'Two captains commanding one ship make it sink'. Intra-elite rivalry and Mass Violence in Sudan.
Author: Johnson, Rory

Keywords: Darfur
Genocide
Omar al Bashir
Abstract: This piece seeks to test the applicability of a newly developed paradigm of genocidal consolidation in explaining the outbreak of mass indiscriminate violence against civilians in the Darfur region of Sudan in the early 2000s. The premise of this theory is that such violence is meted as a premeditated and calculated policy to concurrently resolve an intra-elite crisis. In the case of the Sudan it is the growing rivalry between President Omar al-Bashir and Hasan al-Turabi that is of particular interest in this regard.
