The Prime Minister’s Special Representative (PMSR) on Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict works with governments, the UN, civil society and others to:
- strengthen accountability and tackle impunity
- provide greater support for survivors
- ensure gender equality is fully integrated in all peace and security efforts
- deliver a more effective multilateral response to crimes of sexual violence in conflict
The PMSR also promotes and implements the commitments of the June 2014 Global Summit.
In addition to continuing the international campaign to raise awareness, the PMSR chairs the cross-Whitehall ministerial committee which brings together the FCO, DFID, MoD and the Home Office. The committee looks at implementation of UK commitments as well as what additional support we can provide politically and practically to key partners in order to secure measurable progress. The PMSR also chairs the PSVI Steering Board with NGOs, academia and experts.
The PMSR undertakes these activities on behalf of the Prime Minister, and reports to the Prime Minister.
