Selected Bibliography »Sexual Violence in Armed Conflict«

In the past forty years, a vibrant interdisciplinary research landscape has developed that explores the complexity of sexual violence in armed conflict. Our bibliography presents a unique specialist selection of this research.

The collection is continuously updated, and presently stores about 2,500 books, articles and selected NGO reports, mainly in English and, to a much lesser extent, in German. Apart from current work in the field, it documents the knowledge production since the 1970s. The focus of the selection mirrors the ongoing work of the SVAC network.
