WEBSITE: Kooperationsprojekt: Sexuelle Gewalt in bewaffneten Konflikten - Collaborative Research Project: Sexual Violence in Armed Conflicts

Description: »This collaborative research effort aims to bring together empirical and theoretical studies focusing on sexual violence in different theaters of armed conflict. A series of workshops and conferences with representatives from a variety of disciplines is being planned. Historians, legal scholars, sociologists, philosophers, psychologists, experts in cultural studies, and human rights activists will develop common research questions and a framework for comparison, present and discuss their work, and explore opportunities for cooperation. In the initial three-year period, members of the staff of the Hamburg Institute for Social Research will coordinate these activities.«
