Les violences sexuelles dans les conflits du monde arabe : objectifs, conséquences et réponses à apporter à une arme de guerre

Abstract : This research paper aims at analyzing the strategies behind the use of sexual violence in the conflicts currently existing in the Arab world. By focusing on four countries, Syria, Libya, Iraq and Yemen, this study intends to show that sexual violence in wartime is no coincidence. It would actually meet the needs of a fully-fledged strategy which is planed and organized in high places. Besides, this work aims at debunking some myths and stereotypes about sexual violence in conflict, which affects both men and women. As a fully-fledged strategy, sexual violence would also mean to leave a strong imprint on its victims. This paper also studies the consequences of wartime rape in Muslim societies where Islam plays a central role. This study also focuses on the legal answers to sexual violence in wartime, through the unsuccessful initiatives taken by the International Criminal Court, and the other innovative legal means which may be used.
