Promoting Accountability for Conflict-Related Sexual Violence Against Men: A Comparative Legal Analysis of International And Domestic Laws Relating To IDP and Refugee Men In Uganda

Working Paper Number 24 - This paper addresses an issue of growing concern to gender activists, human rights and humanitarian actors, as well as governments, namely: what legal remedies are available to male survivors of conflict-related sexual violence, particularly if their experience has forced them to migrate to a new country or become internally displaced? The paper demonstrates that while international criminal justice has begun to define sexual violence in a gender-inclusive manner, this legal potential has been seriously underutilized in nearly all cases to date. The paper thus serves as a wake-up call to those concerned with justice for survivors of sexual violence, and, using Uganda as a case study, lays the groundwork upon which to generate a legal reform agenda internationally.
