CALL FOR PAPERS: WID Working Papers Special Edition on *Sexual Violence and 
Conflict*

The *Working Papers on Women and International Development* series features 
article-length manuscripts by scholars from a broad range of disciplines. It 
disseminates materials that are at a late stage of formulation and that 
contribute new understandings of women's economic, social, and political 
position amidst change. The series focuses on the relationships between gender 
and global transformation and publishes reports of empirical studies and 
projects, theoretical analyses, and policy discussions that illuminate the 
processes of change in the broadest sense.

Please consider submitting a manuscript for a special WID Working Papers 
edition on *Sexual Violence and Conflict*. In this special issue, the WID 
Working Papers is looking for submissions that advance knowledge on the 
complexity of sexual violence during violent conflict and post-conflict 
situations. We are interested in essays that examine various types of sexual 
violence, and its impacts on intersections on gender, race, ethnicity, class, 
and sexual orientation within different conflicts and domains.

Sexual violence has been a part of conflict since warfare began but research 
and scholarship have only recently begun to uncover its extent and complexity. 
Rather than being a 'consequence' or 'side effect' of war, sexual violence is 
frequently used deliberately to destabilize and terrorize civilian populations, 
often a particular ethnic group or gender. Rape has been labeled a weapon of 
war during conflicts in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Rwanda, the Democratic Republic of 
Congo, and Sudan. Rape and sexual exploitation also continue in the aftermath 
of conflict and have been documented in refugee camps in Liberia, Myanmar, and 
Colombia, perpetrated by border guards, police, aid workers, and United Nations 
peacekeepers. While studies of sexual violence in conflict have largely focused 
on women and children as victims, sexual abuse of men and its effects remain 
virtually unexplored, including in their roles as soldiers, prisoners, 
significant others, and family members of those who have been directly violated.

There is growing recognition in international law and scholarship of the role 
of sexual violence in conflict. Accordingly, there is a need to bridge the 
dispersed literature on the topic. This compilation of papers will synthesize a 
broad range of ideas and perspectives from multiple academic and geographic 
fields. We seek submissions for a special edition that will broaden our 
understanding of the history, practice, and effects of sexual violence directed 
towards women and/or men during and after conflict situations, understood in a 
broad sense.

Papers from any geographic area of the developing world are welcome. Possible 
topics include but are not limited to:

--institutions of sexual violence such as sexual slavery, human trafficking and 
prostitution

--histories of sexual violence in conflicts around the globe, from the ancient 
world to the present

--international law and sexual violence

--innovative prevention, intervention and/or treatment of sexual violence

--networking or collaborative efforts

--medical, psychological, and clinical perspectives on sexual violence during 
war

--survivorhood and the healing process

The deadline for submissions is *January 25, 2008*. Email submissions or 
queries to [log in to unmask] with subject line "Sexual Violence in Conflict". For 
more information on the series and to see recent Working Papers, visit our
