Abstract:Two rebel groups cooperatively initiated a political rebellion in Darfur in early 2003. They appear to have done so in conditions in which success was unlikely and genocidal violence against civilians was likely. This research aims to improve the historical explanation of the 2003 conflict in Darfur by exploring whether Kuperman's (2005, 2006, 2008a, 2008b) theoretical framework of the moral hazard of humanitarian intervention explains this empirical puzzle. In particular, the research tests whether the Sudan Liberation Army/Movement, one of two rebel movements, intentionally provoked a humanitarian catastrophe in Darfur in order to attract international intervention and advance its political interests. Limited information available through English-language publications, contemporaneous media and in-person interviews indicates the hypothesis does not compellingly explain why the insurgents rebelled when they did. The evidence tentatively suggests the foco theory of rebellion is a more useful tool to understanding the rebels' strategic vision at the onset of the conflict. In addition, the Naivasha peace talks appear to have had a demonstration effect on Darfuri rebels and explain the timing of the rebellion.
