WILPF Conference Report

In December 2011, the Swedish section of Women's International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF) arranged a conference on the issue of impunity for SGBV in conflict and post conflict settings. The conference was arranged in cooperation with the Swedish NGO Kvinna till Kvinna and Amnesty International in Sweden. It brought together an international group of experts, women's rights activists and governmental representatives to share and discuss obstacles and strategies relating to ending SGBV impunity.

The aim of the report “From impunity to accountability” is to list some of the most critical challenges ahead on international, national and local level in the fight against impunity. The report draws on discussions during the December conference, at which the participants spoke about the obstacles they face in their day-to-day work against impunity, and how these obstacles may be overcome. In addition to this, the report also includes a number of conclusions and recommendations from previously published reports relating to impunity for sexual and gender based violence in conflict and post conflict settings.
