Abstract

Whether perpetrated during the Second World War, the conflict in the Congo, or during the preemptive attack in Iraq, sexual humiliation and rape are part of the war like a detonator is part of a bomb. But what kind of a violent phenomenon is it? In what ways are wartime rape and sexual violence differentiated from those of everyday life? And why is sexual violence against men still a taboo? In order to answer questions such as these, researchers have begun to describe the extent, forms and intensity of sexual violence in various wars.
