    Abstract : What conditions lead to confidence among civil war combatants that they will not face accountability for perpetrating sexual violence? This study investigates the causes of impunity for sexual violence among armed actors.

    Abstract : This study is a meta-analysis of the manner in which global relations impact on national level policy spaces and policy formation.
