Men's and Women's Relations in Coercive Settings

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in or organising a conference


Building on the RLP’s South-South Institute’s work with male survivors of sexual violence in Uganda (2013) and Cambodia (2015), this Summer Institute will focus on women’s and men’s experiences of forced relationships in wartime. The Institute strives to move beyond gendered victim-perpetrator terminology in the growing study and response to forced marriage or conjugal slavery, in order to capture the large variety of relationships that exist in coercive conflict settings. We hope that by bringing into consideration men’s perspectives and experiences in relation to women’s, new areas of research and policy may emerge that also help to bring into focus further dimensions of the other thematic approaches of the Conjugal Slavery in War (CSiW) Partnership: history, justice and children born of war.
