International law and justice for victims of the gross human rights violation of sexual and gender-based violence

Day(s): 27, 28 and 29

the South African Institute for Advanced Constitutional, Public, Human Rights and International Law (SAIFAC), a centre of the University of Johannesburg, is hosting a conference to address the central question whether the current international legal framework provides adequate recourse for victims of sexual and gender-based violence. The focus of the conference will be on the achievement of justice for victims based on three main themes, namely accountability (individual criminal prosecution and state responsibility); reparation for victims; and the positive role that international law can play in addressing the culture of denial and social stigma attached to these violations and in restoring the dignity of its victims.
