This article takes issue with a number of key representations of the Darfur and Chad crises. It argues that the conflict in Darfur is to some extent the continuation of the civil war in Chad, not the opposite; the failure to acknowledge the regional dimensions of these two crises is responsible for the current fighting and the stalemate in Darfur; and a breakthrough needs a fresh reassessment of the conflicts and their dynamics by a more capable mediation team.
