Executive Summary

This report focuses on two United Nations Security Council Resolutions: S/RES/1325 (2000) on women, peace and security, and S/RES/1820 (2008) on sexual violence in war and conflict. Sexual violence has been a part of the warfare in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) for more than a decade. Much of the focus of the international community has therefore been on measures to address this issue.
