The Nuremberg Academy announce the update and review of their Sexual Crimes in Conflict Database 19 Jun 2019
On the International Day for the Elimination of Sexual Violence in Conflict

Dear friends of the International Nuremberg Principles Academy,

On this International Day for the Elimination of Sexual Violence in Conflict, we are pleased to announce the update and review of our Sexual Crimes in Conflict Database. The Nuremberg Academy supports the worldwide efforts striving to foster solidarity with survivors who endure multiple, intersecting stigmas in the wake of sexual violence. The Nuremberg Academy contributes to these efforts by offering a database, which was developed by the Nuremberg Academy and is fully and freely accessible online. It allows users to conduct research specifically related to conflict-related sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV).

The unique feature of the database is the combination of available data, including relevant jurisprudence from international, hybrid, regional and national courts, and other transitional justice mechanisms as well as academic literature and other publications. The database now contains more than 730 entries of relevant case-law and literature on conflict-related sexual violence.

The Sexual Crimes in Conflict Database, which was initially launched in 2016, also provides information on the relevant findings from commissions of inquiry, truth commissions and other transitional justice mechanisms. Relevant areas of focus include gaps in jurisprudence, obstacles to establishing accountability, negative impacts of prosecution, means of prevention as well as training materials dealing with investigation and prosecution.

The database is accessible on the website of the Nuremberg Academy, click here to access the database.

You may also be interested in the Guiding Principles and Recommendations on “Cooperation between Civil Society Actors and Judicial Mechanisms in the Prosecution of Conflict-Related Sexual Violence” previously published by the Nuremberg Academy and available online.

Please feel free to forward this information to any interested colleagues.
Best regards,
International Nuremberg Principles Academy
