Angelina redux

“A Year for Accountability:” holding those responsible for crimes in Darfur.

Readers of The Economist were taken off-guard by an essay last year written by an unusual contributor to that serious-minded journal: Hollywood superstar Angelina Jolie, who weighed in with “A Year for Accountability,” a call to hold responsible those who have committed genocide and other crimes in Darfur. That essay led, in December, to the appearance in gossip mag Us Weekly of another unlikely suspect: SCU Associate Professor of Economics Michael Kevane, who was asked: Is Angie credible? “I think she is raising a very important issue about credibility,” he told Us. Currently chairing the economics department, Kevane has studied Sudan for more than two decades and has served as president of the Sudan Studies Association. —SBS
