Accountability for Sexual Violence

JAMA. 2015;314(15):1553. doi:10.1001/jama.2015.13041

Sexual violence is often carried out during and after periods of armed conflict or political unrest, and better support and training are needed at the national level to increase the chances of prosecuting crimes of sexual violence. To better understand the challenges of reporting, investigating, and prosecuting sexual violence cases, investigators from the Human Rights Center at the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law conducted interviews between 2011 and 2014 in Kenya, Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Uganda, which had all experienced some conflict in recent years. Their findings appear in the report, “The Long Road: Accountability for Sexual Violence in Conflict and Post-Conflict Settings” (http://bit.ly/1LcXoHS).
