Second edition of the International Protocol on the Documentation and Investigation of Sexual Violence in Conflict

The International Protocol on the Documentation and Investigation of Sexual Violence in Conflict, produced in collaboration with over 200 gender and sexual violence experts, was launched at the 2014 Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict. The Protocol is designed to help strengthen the evidence base for bringing perpetrators to justice, thus overcoming one of the key barriers to tackling impunity for sexual violence in conflict. The second edition of the International Protocol is now available in English. Translations will be available in July 2017.
