Documenting Conflict and Atrocity-Related Sexual Violence Crimes in CAR, Iraq, Myanmar and Sri Lanka: Country Supplements to the International Protocol on the Documentation and Investigation of Sexual Violence in Conflict

A side event to the 17th Session of the ICC Assembly of States Parties,

Sponsored by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office and co-hosted by the Centre for International Law Research and Policy – Case Matrix Network, the Commission for International Justice and Accountability, the Institute for International Criminal Investigations and REDRESS.

The Hague, World Forum, Europe 1&2
11 December 2018, 0830 – 0945.

This side event aims to review efforts to strengthen the pedagogical foundations of documentation for conflict and atrocity-related sexual violence crimes, through the development and application of four country-specific supplements to the International Protocol on the Documentation and Investigation of Sexual Violence in Conflict (the Protocol). Speakers will reflect on the importance of embedding documentation best practices by the diverse range of institutions engaging in accountability efforts for conflict-related sexual violence and the role that the Protocol – and country specific Supplements – can play in this endeavour. They will also consider critical challenges facing the documentation of CARSV, including over-documentation, inadequate coordination, and weak practitioner competences, before reflecting on the possibilities for strengthening responses in line with best practice.
