Strongly Condemning Rise in Conflict-Related Sexual Violence, Speakers Urge Security Council to Better Prevent, Enforce Accountability for Such Crimes.

With gang rape, sexual slavery and other forms of sexual violence used as tactics of war amid rising militarization and weapons proliferation, the Security Council must close the gap between its commitments to address conflict-related sexual violence and the shocking realities for victims and survivors, delegates heard today during the 15-nation organ’s open debate on sexual violence in conflict situations.

During the day-long meeting titled “Promoting Implementation of Security Council Resolutions on Conflict-Related Sexual Violence”, 70 speakers took the floor, united in their condemnation of sexual violence in conflict, with many highlighting the urgent need for the Council to fully implement its various resolutions on the matter.
