Abstract: »The genealogy of sexual violence in war, inter war and post war periods can only be understood through an analysis of the relationship between sexual identity, violence and sexuality. Armed conflicts function as a kind of magnifying glass, making visible definitions of sexual identity constructed through the legitimization of violence. Wartime crimes of sexual violence, viewed until now as limit phenomena characteristic of a state of exception, thus point to regularities whose form and function may vary but whose reference points are rooted in the social expression of power.« (Source: Revista crítica de ciências sociais)
