Addressing Sexual Violence Through Peace Processes: A View from Colombia

17 Jul 2018 | Washington, D.C. and online

Organized By : United States Institute of Peace

Sexual violence is frequently used as a systematic weapon of war against women and men and may amount to a crime against humanity during times of conflict and times of peace. Research that illustrates the forms, frequency and context of sexual violence is critical to help build peace and prevent the recurrence of such violence. On 17 July, the U.S. Institute of Peace, Oxfam and the Latin America Working Group hold a discussion on addressing sexual violence in peace processes using evidence from recent survey results from Colombia.

The event will be live-streamed in Spanish, with English translation provided for guests on-site. An English recording will be made available online following the event.
