Sexual Violence as a Weapon of War: Reflections on the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize

The Nobel Peace Prize 2018 is awarded to Nadia Murad and Dr. Denis Mukwege for their efforts to end the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war and armed conflict. To honor and celebrate this important acknowledgement, the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO) and the Centre for Global Health at UiO are co-hosting a seminar on sexual violence as a weapon of war, as a part of the Oslo Peace Days.
