Addressing Sexual Violence: Technology and Truth Commissions
Sexual violence is an intractable problem, not least in humanitarian settings. This roundtable takes a critical look at how this issue is addressed by the international community. The first part of the discussion addresses the turn towards technology as a current trend in humanitarian aid. What should we think about the interface between technology and the fight against conflict-related sexual violence? What are the potential challenges that might emerge from the use of wearable digital technology for combating sexual violence? The second part of the event discusses the role of truth commissions in addressing sexual violence post-conflict. How is this done, and to what effect?
