Mission for Sudan

Eric Reeves

I have spent the past twenty-two years working virtually full-time as a Sudan researcher and analyst, publishing extensively both in the US and internationally. I have testified several times before the Congress, lectured widely in academic settings, and has served as a consultant to a number of human rights and humanitarian organizations operating in Sudan. I have most recently been a Senior Fellow at Harvard University’s François-Xavier Bagnoud Center for Health and Human Rights. Working independently, I've written on all aspects of Sudan’s recent history. My book about Darfur  (A Long Day’s Dying: Critical Moments in the Darfur Genocide) was published in May 2007. More recently I published Compromising with Evil: An archival history of greater Sudan, 2007 — 2012 (available at no cost as an eBook).

[An autobiographical sketch, growing out of reflections during recent years, may be found here.]

The contents of my website [ www.SudanReeves.org ], as well as other electronic files and hard copy—including a range of Sudan-related publications, written materials, photographs, and maps—are presently being archived in the human rights division of the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center, University of Connecticut Libraries, Storrs, Connecticut.

As part of my work, I served as an expert witness in dozens of asylum cases involving Darfuris; nearly all were eventually granted political asylum in the United States or Europe.

Finally, for a number of years I was director of the Sudan Aid Fund, hosted by the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts (a 501/c/3 organization).  I have donated all lecture fees, human rights award honoraria, publication stipends, royalties, and other Sudan-related income to the Sudan Aid Fund and directly to humanitarian organizations without a US. 501/c/3 designation. I also donate all gallery proceeds from my woodturnings to Oxfam America, International Medical Corps, and other humanitarian organizations for their urgent work in Darfur and indeed greater Sudan, including South Sudan and South Kordofan.

Although the Sudan Aid Fund eventually became too expensive to maintain at the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts because of a drop-off in contributions, I still contributes substantially to humanitarian organizations by way of sale of his woodturnings:


Altogether, I've has been able to direct more than $1.4 million to a range of humanitarian organizations in greater Sudan.
