genocide

In April 2012, President Obama went all-in rhetorically when he asserted that preventing mass atrocities and genocide is a "core national security interest and a core moral responsibility of the United States." Such statements are in part an outgrowth of the American public's horror at the genocide and atrocities of recent decades in places like Bosnia, Rwanda, and Darfur. But as the limited U.S. response to the ongoing conflict in Syria illustrates, there is not yet a full understanding of the centrality of preventing mass atrocities to our national security.

Freedom House strongly urges Arab League members meeting in Qatar this weekend to press indicted Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir to rescind a ban on international aid groups in Darfur and cooperate with the International Criminal Court (ICC).

Freedom House welcomes today's decision by the International Criminal Court (ICC) to issue an arrest warrant for Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir.
