Abstract

This article explores the delayed responses of international and continental bodies in safeguarding the human rights of the people of Sudan. The central question grappled with in this article is: how effective were the international and continental peacekeeping, security, and human rights bodies in dealing with Sudanese cases of genocide, war crimes, crime against humanity and ethnic cleansing? The existing body of knowledge on this subject lacks a clear explanation of why Omar Al Bashir remained in power for such a long period of time in Sudan without any international or continental effective responses when he violated fundamental human rights. As such, this article aims to contribute to the existing body of knowledge by filling the knowledge gap identified. We argue that the international and continental peacekeeping, security, and human rights bodies delayed dismally in engaging the monocratic al-Bashir until the Sudanese army overthrew him. This article relied heavily on the qualitative research approach in the form of document and thematic content analysis to analyse the key themes and answer the central question.
