Citizen-Driven Political Will
The following article is adapted from a speech I gave at the 2007 Global Conference on Genocide Prevention. Firstly, I explore why citizen-generated political will for genocide prevention matters, and why it has historically been lacking in the US context. Secondly, I describe some of the work being done by a new generation of activists who responded to the Darfur crisis.
