Sexual violence in armed conflict

Published on 21 March par Héloïse Humbert

While sexual violence has gained public awareness since the mid-1970s and become today a subject in academic debate, national and international politics, efforts to understand this form of violence remain inadequate. How is sexual violence tied to other forms of violence? Who are the perpetrators? What are the consequences for individual victims and societies? How to prevent sexual violence? And what are the pressing questions today?
