Brussels/Washington DC Since it was launched in March 2007, ENOUGH – 'the project to end genocide and crimes against humanity' — has helped focus the attention of policymakers on what is needed to halt atrocities in Darfur, northern Uganda, and eastern Congo.
The rapid growth of the ENOUGH Project is a welcome development to those of us who support mass action whenever and wherever it is necessary to mobilise an effective international response to atrocity crimes. The partnerships that ENOUGH is forging with a broad array of organizations – such as the Save Darfur Coalition, the Genocide Intervention Network, Invisible Children, and an number of faith-based groups – augur well for a more coordinated and better informed grassroots movement to end these scourges wherever they occur.
To enable this project to most effectively pursue its unique objectives, the co-founders of ENOUGH – the International Crisis Group and Center for American Progress (CAP) - have agreed that after today, 30 September, the three Crisis Group employees most involved in getting ENOUGH off the ground – John Prendergast, Colin Thomas-Jensen and Julia Spiegel – will work full-time for ENOUGH, and that ENOUGH itself will operate wholly in association with CAP.
We at Crisis Group remain grateful for the outstanding contribution that John Prendergast and his colleagues have made working for us on conflict prevention and resolution in Africa, and wish them and ENOUGH every success in pursuing their mission, which remains closely complementary to our own.
