Sexual violence as a weapon of war? : perceptions, prescriptions, problems in the Congo and beyond
In this provocative but much-needed book, Eriksson Baaz and Stern challenge the dominant understandings of sexual violence in conflict and post-conflict settings. Based on original fieldwork in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, as well as research material from other conflict zones, the book challenges the recent prominence given to sexual violence, highlighting the problems with isolating that from other violence in war. A much-anticipated book by two acknowledged experts in the field.
