Expert conference

International Law and Justice for Victims of the Gross Human Rights Violation of Sexual and Gender-Based Violence

The KAS Rule of Law Program for Sub-Saharan Africa in cooperation with the South African Institute for Advanced Constitutional, Public, Human Rights and International Law (SAIFAC) and the South African Research Chair in International Law (SARCIL) would like to invite you to attend this conference.

Details

The central question of the conference is whether the international legal framework currently adequately addresses sexual and gender-based violence by achieving justice for its countless victims. The focus of the conference will be on the achievement of justice for victims based on three main themes, namely accountability (individual criminal prosecution and state responsibility); reparation for victims; and the positive role that international law can play in addressing the culture of denial and social stigma attached to these violations, and in restoring the dignity of its victims.
