EXTERNALLY-FUNDED RESEARCH PROJECTS
The ADF response to armed conflict based sexual violence
This project seeks to understand how the Australian Defence Force prepares its personnel to address armed conflict based sexual violence in peacekeeping operations. By examining documents obtained through Freedom of Information requests this project will analyse how the UN Women, Peace, and Security responses to armed conflict sexual violence (and by extension the National Plan of Action policies) are being implemented at a practical level. This will provide insight into what actions are being taken to end impunity for perpetrators of this international crime.
