In a special edition of Inside the Issues, guest host and CIGI Senior Fellow Barry Carin speaks with Mukesh Kapila, Professor of Global Health and Humanitarian Affairs, University Of Manchester, about the conflict in Darfur and ongoing situation in Sudan. Beginning with background on his experiences at the U.N., Kapila shares insights on how information communication technologies (ICTs) and the media have impacted accountability and global awareness. The discussion then moves on to consider global reaction to the conflict and 12 common excuses for inaction, including denial and prevarication. What lessons can be learned? Kapila closes by calling for greater courage in those leading global institutions, noting that even one person can make a difference if given the right platform.
