Conflict Related Sexual Violence - Report of the United Nations Secretary-General

06.11.2019 / Created by (EMWF)

The present report is based on information verified by the United Nations, primarily through the monitoring, analysis and reporting arrangements on conflict-related sexual violence established pursuant to Security Council resolution 1960 (2010). It focuses on sexual violence as both a tactic of war and a tactic of terrorism. The report spans 19 country situations (including Syria and Libya), covering the period of January to December 2018.

The report states that ‘’ Trends analysis of incidents in 2018 confirms that sexual violence continues as part of the broader strategy of conflict and that women and girls are significantly affected.’’ Apparently this type of violence was used to displace communities, expel so-called “undesirable” groups and seize contested land and other resources.
