Launch of the CRSV Observatory

Drawing inspiration from a call for action from the United Nations Human Rights Office of the High Commissioner Special Rapporteur on violence against women, its causes and consequences for countries to document gender-related killings of women by collecting, analyzing and reviewing data on femicides with the aim of prevention. The CRSV Observatory is a memory project from The Gender Security Project aimed at dismantling the historical silencing, sidelining, and erasure of conflict-related sexual violence. The Observatory documents cases where sexual violence has been deliberately and systemically deployed to target particular sections of society against backgrounds of violent conflict.
