DR Congo warlord, Bosco Ntaganda has been recently charged with war crimes by the ICC, which include ordering fighters to rape women and recruit child soldiers. For the first time the issue of sexual violence in conflict situations will be of primary importance at a high-profile trial. In light of this and the 25th Human Rights Council's (March 3 - 28) imminent high-level dialogue on sexual violence in the DRC, the Eldis conflict and security Editor has collated the latest research and resources on sexual violence in conflict situations.
