This month, we provide an advanced look at the challenges that 2010 holds for the peace process in Darfur. We also continue to look at the issues facing the Democratic Republic of Congo. In addition, the digest continues to explore developments in three areas: The Negotiations and Peace Process, Humanitarian Affairs and Security, and Darfur in Canadian Politics.
