Violence against women in conflict – a threat to peace and security. What is GTZ doing to prevent it?

In 2008, building on Resolution 1325, the UN passed Resolution 1820 condemning sexual violence as a war crime and a threat to peace and security. With Resolution 1888, passed in 2009, the demands made previously were stated in even greater detail and were given extra force through the appointment of a special rapporteur and the option of imposing sanctions. Passed just shortly after this, Resolution 1889 stressed the role which women are able to play in post-conflict situations and activities to consolidate peace.
