Various studies of warfare, women's roles within the armies and soldiers' wives and companions give some indication that the relations between foreign soldiers and local women could be nuanced. Loving and caring relationships and successful marriages between soldiers and local women are more likely to remain hidden or unnoticed, whereas conflict related sexual violence (CRSV) will be more likely to be reported. The expression 'children born of war' (CBOW) will be used for the analysis of post-conflict scenarios. CRSV is also linked to the similarly racially motivated policy of forcing women to abort the children conceived through rape, as for instance during the Rwandan genocide. Gender-based violence (GBV) had long been judged an inevitable consequence or by-product of wars, civil wars and other types of armed conflict. United Nation (UN) declares the Rights of the Child for the protection and safeguard of the child rights.
