Abstract: »By examining the case of rapes of Algerian women perpetrated by French soldiers during the French Algerian War (1954-1962) this paper tries to examine the contexts that allowed the rapes to happen, even though during this war rape was not a war tactic. In order to understand rapes in the Algerian War one must first take into account the colonial contest and how rape was considered at that time by the civil French society.« (Source: Deportate, esuli, profughe)
