Tactical Rape in War and Conflict

This Chapter focusses on developments at the United Nations Security Council regarding tactical rape and sexual violence in conflict after 2000 with emphasis on UNSCR 1820 and other resolutions which followed 2008. It highlights the consensus which emerged that these were issues falling within the Security Council’s mandate as threats to women, to states and to the international community. It analyses primary sources such as UN report, resolutions and a key debate around UNSCR 1820 and considers the growing institutionalisation of responses and commitments regarding these crimes. Policies and practices included the appointment of senior advisors and experts, requirements for reporting and data collection and analysis, budget allocations and training for peacekeepers and other personnel in situations of conflict where tactical rape and sexual violence were perpetrated. Remaining challenges including UN limits on enforcing compliance with resolutions remained with state actors featuring on the lists of known perpetrators.

Keywords:   tactical rape, unscr 1820, united nations security council mandate, security, institutionalisation, state actors
