- Right to fair trial — Rape and sexual violence — Armed conflict
This concluding chapter envisions a more global and integrated approach to addressing conflict-related sexual violence in the future. It explores three themes from the book concerning the intersection between the work by the Office of the Prosecutor (OTP) on conflict-related sexual violence and that being done by others: the intersection between prosecuting and preventing conflict-related sexual violence and other gender-related harm, the intersection between prosecuting and documenting conflict-related sexual violence and other gender-related harm, and the intersection between prosecuting sexual violence crimes at the national and international levels around the world. The chapter looks at how the OTP’s work intersects in meaningful ways with work now being done by many other actors as well as the considerable scope for multi-faceted collaboration, concluding that forums for facilitating dialogue and experience sharing between these various actors, and for promoting more comprehensive solutions to gender-related conflict issues, should be a priority.
