Abstract

Between 1998 and 2008 alone, sexual violence against men was noted in reports on twenty-ve conict-aected countries. Since then, additional reports have emerged from the major conflict zones of our time, including Libya, Syria, Democratic Republic of Congo, and Central African Republic (CAR).
In June 2013, for the first time, men and boys were named as victims of sexual violence in UN Security Council Resolution 2106. As evidence builds, multi-laterals, donors and NGOs involved in humanitarian response in conflict and emergency situations are beginning to raise critical questions: what are the scope, forms and
impacts of such violence? Which legal frameworks are available to survivors? What specific response and prevention mechanisms are required to address this violence? Does the current discourse on conflict and sexual violence need to change? This report considers these questions and presents new evidence regarding sexual violence against men and boys in conflict.
