Sexual Violence During War: Toward an Explanation of Variation
November 27, Ithaca Campus
Professor, Department of Political Science
4:30-6:00pm, Room 423 ILR Conference Center
Sexual violence during war varies in extent and takes distinct forms. In some conflicts, sexual violence is widespread; yet, in other conflicts—including some cases of ethnic conflict, it is quite limited. In some conflicts, sexual violence takes the form of sexual slavery; in others, torture in detention. After demonstrating this variation, a tentative approach to explaining this variation will be advanced.
