This book explores the gaps between policy and practice in international organizations' responses to conflict-related sexual violence, and sets out the implications for these organizations, criminal courts, and tribunals for addressing and reducing such violence. Based on research on responses to conflict-related sexual violence in countries including Afghanistan, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Colombia, Haiti, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Somalia, and South Africa, the editors offer fresh perspectives on and approaches to rendering justice to women who have been subjected to sexual violence. At once scholarly, provocative, and action-oriented, this collective volume by leading anthropologists, international human rights lawyers, legal theorists, political scientists, mental health professionals, and activists exemplifies a visionary blending of analysis, evidence, concepts, and proposals for ameliorating the lot of those whose lives are framed by war and conflict and the striving to find healing and justice.
