Rape, torture and genocide

by Daniela De Vito | 01 March 2014
Category: Law Academic
How rape has been conceptualised, placed and treated by the various components within international human rights and humanitarian law present both inconsistencies, and in recent times, innovative conclusions. In terms of the former category, inconsistencies, when rape is explicitly mentioned within, for instance, the context of international humanitarian law, it tends to be associated with a woman's honour and not as a crime of violence or it is linked to the protection of women and not with the prohibition of rape. In contrast, the well-established international crime of torture has been conceptualised as a crime of violence and its prohibition is paramount. This book undertakes a political analysis approach to what can happen when rape is subsumed into the international crimes of torture and genocide.
