URGENT: This event has been postponed to February 14-16, 2013 due to weather conditions.
The United States Institute of Peace (USIP), the Human Rights Center at the University of California, Berkeley, the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO), and Stockholm International Peace Research Institute North America (SIPRI North America) will convene a group of expert scholars, policymakers, practitioners, and military and civil society actors to examine the issue of sexual violence in conflict and post-conflict settings, identify gaps in knowledge and reporting and explore how to increase the effectiveness of current responses to such violence.
Eight panels will present on the following topics: methodological challenges and opportunities; perpetrating sexual violence; surviving sexual violence; the impact and consequences of sexual violence; responses to sexual violence: legal and executive frameworks; security from sexual violence; responses to sexual violence: policy and programming decision frameworks; and a concluding roundtable discussion on the ways forward.
