Volume 2015, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 1561-9818


Conflict-related sexual violence has been a feature of war for generations. The focus of this publication falls within the greater discussions on the implementation of United Nations Security Council Resolutions 1325 and1820, which seek to prevent and respond to conflict-related sexual violence. There are scholarly works documenting the experiences of the victims and survivors of sexual violence experienced during conflict, with some progress evident in the fight against impunity in sexual violence. The publication under review provides a detailed events based data set of post-settlement sexual violence in six African conflicts : Burundi, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Liberia, Mozambique, Sierra Leone and South Africa.
