Understanding and addressing conflict-related sexual violence: Lessons learned from the Democratic Republic of Congo
The Nordic Africa Institute, Conflict, Displacement and Transformation.
2010 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The Democratic Republic of Congo’s (DRC) warscape has become infamous globally from the reports on the massive scale of sexual violence. While vast amounts of other forms of violence and abuse have also been committed, it is sexual violence that has attracted the lion’s share of attention, especially among “outside” observers. Countless reports, newspaper articles, news-clips, appeals and documentaries have been devoted to the issue. Numerous journalists, activists and representatives of diverse international organisations and governments have made pilgrimages to the DRC to meet and listen to survivors first-hand.
