ABSTRACT
The article discusses how the international community has acquitted itself since the beginnings of orchestrated violence in Darfur, Sudan in early 2003. The slow response of the international community casts doubts on the capacity of the humanitarian system to deliver effective protection and assistance in major high-profile emergencies. The Darfur response exemplified the positive shift in focus in the activity of humanitarian agencies from delivery to human rights and protection advocacy.
