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


This conference encouraged deeper and more coordinated dialogue, expertise exchange and action among practitioners working on conflict-related sexual violence prosecutions both at the international and the national level. The discussions and presentations during the conference were targeted at identifying key legislative and policy recommendations for national court systems with regard to both conflict-related sexual violence and peacetime sexual and gender based violence. The conference also sought to create knowledge networks, both regional and international, for practitioners working in sexual and gender based violence to facilitate proper coordination of efforts and smoothen knowledge and experience transfer among key state and non-state actors.
