Attending the Missing Peace Symposium in Washington DC: http://www.usip.org/events/the-missing-peace-symposium-2013
Sexual violence in conflict and post-conflict settings is increasingly recognized as a threat to international peace and security. To address this challenge, the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO), the United States Institute of Peace (USIP), the Human Rights Center at the University of California, Berkeley, and Stockholm International Peace Research Institute North America (SIPRI North America) is convening the MIssing Peace Symposium in Washington DC from February 14-16. The symposium will convene a group of scholars, policymakers, practitioners, and military and civil society actors to examine the issue of sexual violence in conflict and post-conflict settings, identify gaps in knowledge and reporting and explore how to increase the effectiveness of current responses to such violence.
