From Impunity to Prosecution? Sexual Violence in Sudan Beyond Darfur
This study deals with sexual violence in Sudan, focusing primarily on rape. In Sudan, rape has occurred not only in armed ethnic conflicts in the country, but as a form of political oppression under the pretext of threats to national security. Furthermore, the categorization of rape as a form of adultery not only leads to the virtual impossibility of convicting a rapist, but may even lead to the incrimination of the female victim of rape instead.
