). Poor-quality housing where residence is insecure, overcrowded and/or in makeshift dwellings can make women vulnerable to burglary, theft and multiple forms of sexual violence (Chant, 2013 ), together with lack of street lighting and restricted access to safe and affordable transport (McIlwaine, 2016 ). In turn, in slum communities where sanitary facilities are located far from people’s homes it has emerged that women experience heightened levels of GBV, especially at night (Bapat and Agarwal, 2003 ).

(UNHCR 2002a, para. 36 (x), in Crawley and Lester 2004: 129). The Gender Guidelines also offer guidance in establishing which forms of gender-specific harm can constitute persecution: International human rights law and international criminal law clearly identify certain acts as violations of these laws, such as sexual violence, and support their characterisation as serious abuses, amounting to persecution.

positive trends are evident among victims of this category of crime, reporting levels remain strikingly low. Statistics published by the RCNI demonstrate that an increasing number of users of its service are reporting the crime committed against them to police, with 18% reporting in 2007 and 27% reporting in 2009 (Hanly et al., 2009 : 11). The number of victims of sexual violence reporting to police in 2014 had risen to 33% (RCNI, 2014 : 23). Interestingly, 3% reported exclusively to another formal authority including the Redress Board, Health Services Executive

In late 2019, I presented a paper titled ‘Progressive Men and Predatory Practices’ at a workshop on sexual violence in the public sphere at the Centre for the Study of Law and Governance at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU). I use the term ‘paper’ here loosely. My colleagues presented papers, the results of rigorous research, offering deep analyses woven into appropriate theory

SGBV and sex work South Africa’s progressive constitution recognises gender as a social act of expression and upholds the rights of all forms of gender expression. 4 However, the country’s rates of SGBV are still among the highest in the world. A 2014 study found that 25.3 per cent of the surveyed women had suffered some form of sexual violence, while 37.4 per cent of the men

– human rights, child soldiers, and wartime sexual violence – became more prominent. The UN's willingness to assist with post-independence or democratic transitions necessitated taking up such unfamiliar tasks as ‘running elections, creating new police forces, repatriating refugees, and overseeing the demobilization of armies and the reintegration of deeply divided societies’ (Barnett 2009 : 567). These operations were referred to as ‘second-generation’ peacekeeping. Various other definitions were offered, such as ‘extended’ or ‘wider’ peacekeeping (Findlay 2002 : 6

This will include an overview of the frequently exploitative and violent military–civilian relations throughout the Second World War in different theatres of war and in various phases of the conflict. The exposition will show that violence was perpetrated by soldiers against the civilian population, but also by irregular forces; furthermore, sexual violence occurred in the form of outright rape, but also forced prostitution in occupied territories, as well as in brothels, mostly notably in the military brothels such as the notorious
