Angelina Jolie continues her call for justice in Darfur, writing an essay about the Sudanese region in an upcoming edition of The Economist.

The actress, who serves as the Goodwill Ambassador to UNHCR, discusses the Darfur crisis in a special Economist section devoted to predictions for 2008, the Guardian newspaper reports.

Jolie joins several presidents and the head of the United Nations in the roster of writers featured in the issue.

In an op-ed piece in the Washington Post in February, Jolie discussed the frustration of not being able to revisit Darfur after earlier trips there.

She wrote, “This might be the moment we stop the cycle of violence and end our tolerance for crimes against humanity.”
