The UN Security Council unanimously passed a resolution to send in a peacekeeping force in July 2007 which set up the African Union-United Nations Hybrid Operation in Darfur (UNAMID), of more than 26,000 peacekeepers. However it will be a year before UNAMID is operational and it is already facing similar obstruction and delay by the government of Sudan as those which weakened the African Mission in Sudan (AMIS) peacekeeping force. This document considers the AMIS operation in Darfur, its weaknesses, the resources now needed and the challenges to timely deployment.
