This Spotlight presents key publications documenting sexual violence perpetrated against women in the context of armed conflicts in Latin America. As well as providing an overview of gender-based violence in the region, these publications draw on specific case studies in order to identify the various underlying causes and institutional weaknesses responsible for perpetuating these human rights abuses. Finally, many of the publications provide recommendations for measures aimed at preventing gender-based violence while also improving access to justice and adequate reparation for victims.
