Language English

Sexual violence has been, and to a large extent continues to be, shrouded in silence. However, the dynamics behind it, including its prevalence and horrific toll on individuals and societies, have been progressively better understood over the last two decades.

With this issue, the Review intends to contribute to the discussion on how to further improve access to and quality of services to victims, while also crafting effective prevention strategies. The fight against sexual violence in armed conflict requires a cross-disciplinary effort, bringing together expertise from diverse areas such as health, political science, gender studies, history, law and ethics.
