Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I have been aware of the dangers and tragedies of this situation, through the contact I have had with NGOs trying to get children's services established in Darfur...but it has been too unsafe and all NGO are out right now, and the UNHCR staff live with bags packed, is my understanding.

My understanding, correct me if I'm wrong, is that Doctors without Borders still has staff in the region and I assume we'll know more about the work of Medecin du Monde from the interview with one of their directors this weekend. I included the links in my comment further up.

Clearly European NGOs have been involved and the EU representative in Sudan was briefing reporters on the status of Peace negotiations so the EU is there in some capacity. The question is politically and militarily should the EU be more actively involved and if so how? What is the current policy?
