Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Rape in war and genocide always involves particularities of place, time, context, and experience. No one can teach or learn about them all. Which histories and experiences, what places and contexts are the most important to consider, and how does one best make such decisions? This chapter concentrates not only on these questions but also on what motivates people-primarily but not exclusively men-to resort to such violence and on what the consequences turn out to be. The contributors concentrate on helping teachers and students to identify the most important causes of rape in war and genocide and what it takes to intervene effectively against them.
