Conflict-Related Sexual Violence in Legal Frameworks

For free

Conflict-related sexual violence (CRSV) is no longer seen as an inevitable by-product of war, but constitutes a crime that is preventable and punishable under international law.

Survivors can seek redress under several legal frameworks for conflict-related violence, predominantly international criminal law and international human rights law, including regional human rights frameworks. Knowing about the different legal frameworks that offer legal protection and redress is critical for survivors and advocates working alongside them. 

This fact sheet presents some of them.
