This edited volume focuses on developments in the prosecution of sexual violence in (post-)conflict situations. The prosecution of such cases raises new and challenging questions as to how to build evidence, as well as how to address victims' concerns in that process. The book examines: the innovations and challenges of empirical, social scientific, archival, and medical data collection techniques; the development of evidence in relation to charges ranging from sexual violence as a war crime, to a crime against humanity to genocide; evidentiary and procedural achievements and challenges involved in prosecuting sexual victimization in international courts; and how to create awareness of sexual violence crimes in order to recognize such crimes and to prevent them in the future.
