Rape, Torture and Genocide


How rape has been conceptualized, placed and treated by the various components within international human rights and humanitarian law present both inconsistencies, and in recent times, innovative conclusions. In terms of the former category, inconsistencies, when rape is explicitly mentioned within, for instance, the context of international humanitarian law, it tends to be associated with a woman's honor and not as a crime of violence or it is linked to the protection of women and not with the prohibition of rape. In contrast, the well-established international crime of torture has been conceptualized as a crime of violence and its prohibition is paramount. This book undertakes a political analysis approach to what can happen when rape is subsumed into the international crimes of torture and genocide.
