Abstract

Wartime rape is not inevitable and is not always present in armed conflict. The observed variation raises several questions: Under what conditions do armed groups not engage in sexual violence? Under what conditions do they engage in rape as a strategy of war? Sexual torture? Sexual slavery? When is widespread rape better understood as a practice, namely, a form of violence that is not ordered but tolerated by commanders…rather than a strategy? [Adapted from text]
