This chapter provides information on situations involving tactical rape and sexual violence in conflict. This includes conflicts in Sudan/Darfur, Syria, Democratic Republic of Congo, Sierra Leone, the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda. It demonstrates the persistent practice of tactical rape and sexual violence in these disparate cultures and highlights the need for ongoing work to prevent and confront these violations which are often perpetrated by states which are part of making international commitments rejecting them. Accounts demonstrate the impact on survivors and victims. The need for reliable data collection as a base for understanding and responding to these crimes is demonstrated along with explanations as to why such data is difficult to collect.

Keywords:   tactical rape, sudan/darfur, syria, democratic republic of congo, sierra leone, former Yugoslavia, rwanda
