v.10, 2012, Special Issue: Sexual Violence and Armed Conflict: Gender, Society, and the State

Conflict-related sexual violence, once invisible due to patriarchal disregard for women’s experiences in war, has become a central focus for ending violence against women world-wide with far reaching consequences in humanitarian and international criminal law. In this special issue, social scientists and practitioners investigate the current state of “justice” for survivors of gender-based violence during armed conflict and post hostility transition.
