UN Plaza: Security Council’s Trip to Africa

In this edition of UN Plaza, I talk to Matthew Lee of Inner City Press about the Security Council’s recent trip to Africa. Matthew accompanied the Council, and in the segment below he recounts what he considers French soft-pedaling on Chad.

As I argue later in the diavlog, one way to explain the difference between how Chad and Sudan are dealt with by the Council is the fact that unlike Sudan, no member state has accused Chad of committing genocide.
