KEY POINTS

  1. Sexual violence is not geographically or demographically discrete; it is a global issue that affects all ages and genders.

  2. Children are a key target group due to their societal status and multiple vulnerabilities in areas affected by conflict.

  3. Sexual violence is pervasive in all settings (public and private) and is more likely to be opportunistic than a tactic of war.

  4. The perpetrators of sexual violence are more often civilian than they are combatants.
