Abstract: »The problem of the population of perpetrators of sexual violence, which are different from other sorts of criminals, has been emerging for a little over twenty years. Sexual violence as well as incestuous relations, exhibitionist behaviour and paedophiles are all problems. In times of war, people were aware that rapes were committed, but these acts were hushed up and often considered to be taboo. Social organisations decided that society could no longer tolerate these behaviours, in some cases before even having categorised these crimes. Social organisations had to remedy the sexual violence situation without really knowing what they were dealing with, looking for solutions before identifying the problems and determining what the answers to these problems would be.« (Source: Cahiers de la sécurité)
