At this panel discussion, which will be held on February 16, 2016 at the Hall Building of Concordia University, the legal, medical and social practitioners with field experience will be debating issues concerning the prevention and prosecution of the systematic use of sexual violence against women during conflicts, but also how victims and survivors of sexual violence can be supported and protected.
More precisely, they will be asked to discuss how sexual violence erodes the social fabric of a community, and how this problem could be tackled more effectively at the national and international levels through legal reform, humanitarian protection and support for survivors, as well as thorough cross-sectional training of the medical, judicial, legal and law enforcement sectors.
