Sexual violence in armed conflict:
Underlying Causes and possible prevention strategie
Thursday 12 November from 6:00 to 7:30
Building on the previous panel discussion "Responding to sexual violence in conflict: can we do better?", the ICRC and CERAH are convening a follow-up event aimed at addressing the challenging issue of prevention of conflict-related sexual violence. The event will take place on the occasion of the second session of CERAH's thematic seminar on "Sexual Violence in Conflict Settings and in Emergencies", and will provide an opportunity to feature the recent publication of the International Review of the Red Cross on "Sexual Violence in Armed Conflict". The conference is also part of the third ICRC Conference Cycle on "Generating respect for the law", an ongoing reflection on how to better prevent violations of the law applicable in armed conflict.
Où et quand
The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is an impartial, neutral and independent organization whose exclusively humanitarian mission is to protect the lives and dignity of victims of armed conflict and other situations of violence and to provide them with assistance. The ICRC also endeavours to prevent suffering by promoting and strengthening humanitarian law and universal humanitarian principles. Established in 1863, the ICRC is at the origin of the Geneva Conventions and the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. It directs and coordinates the international activities conducted by the Movement in armed conflicts and other situations of violence.
