A New Report: Sida, The Nordíc Africa Institute: "The Complexity of Violence: A critical analysis of sexual violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)"

in CONGO, THE DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF THE, 06/06/2010

This report, the first in Sida’s gender-based violence series, draws on an original case study, including extensive interviews with members of thearmed forces in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). By critically exploring and convincingly challenging existing stereotypes and narratives about sexual violence in conflict settings, the authors reveal the need for a nuanced understanding of SGBV, including its invisible victims.

Their analysis transcends reductionist explanations that separate SGBV from other forms of violence that afflict war-torn societies, and haunt post-war contexts. They thus provide invaluable insights into the complex circumstances in which SGBV occurs.
