Abstract:

Conflict-related sexual violence is now a conspicuous concern of academics, activists, and practitioners. However, a number of central and persistent conceptual and political problems are becoming increasingly evident in this burgeoning research field. This paper analyzes these key problems of knowledge production in the field, which concern the object and subject of research, models of knowing, and values in research. This paper then outlines the Gender Justice Methodology, which offers a new approach to studies of conflict-related sexual violence.
