Abstract: »This is the condensed version of a discussion at an international workshop, »The Pervasiveness of Sexual Violence in Wars«, which was conducted at the Hamburg Institute for Social Research in July 2008. At the workshop, scholars from various fields and countries take stock of the status of research in the field, addressing issues such as sexual violence as a military strategy, its relationship to violence in peacetime and to different cultural contexts, and norms and justifications within the military.« (Source: Mittelweg 36)
