Abstract in another language

The border region between Chad and Sudan has a particular history and importance in the development not only of the government and people in Chad, but also affects and is affected by a much wider international field, from neighboring Sudan and Libya to Egypt, France, and the United States. As of September 2006, the war in Sudan's western Darfur region on the border with Chad has been raging for more than three years with over 200,000 Sudanese citizens living in Chadian refugee camps and more than two million displaced in Darfur. This article will begin by attempting to disentangle the complex historical connections as well as the intertwined relations between the present governments of Chad, Sudan, and others, in order to develop a frame for understanding the actors' perspectives in recent violent developments in the border region. The second part will focus on the local border groups mired in a cycle of violence that keeps returning to the forefront of the regional conflict.
