Abstract: »The article discusses research on sexual violence committed during situations of armed conflict and the recognition that, rather than be marginalized, such violence should be seen as a deliberate tactic of warfare aimed at demoralizing the collective enemy and rewarding or psychically strengthening the combatants. The examples of conflicts in the former Yugoslavia and in Rwanda in the 1970s are cited as theaters for such sexual violence that have gained the attention of international justice organizations who view these sexual attacks as crimes against humanity, genocide, or war crimes. Workshops and research projects on this theme are discussed.« [Source: Historical abstracts.]
