Our conversation is to be released in a two-parts podcast series.

In the first episode (released on the 25th of November 2022), Julia and Tyson offered an introduction to CRSV. After defining CRSV and explaining how it differs from Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV), the discussion moved on to the significance of the association of CRSV with the terms ‘tactic of warfare’.  Following, Julia and Tyson talked through the different paths for prosecution at both national and international level.

In the second episode, (released on the 2nd of December 2022) challenges in prosecution of CRSV will be exposed. The panel will also discuss the importance of access to justice for survivors and developments to look ahead to in the consideration of CRSV.
