"International criminal law and the rape of men during armed conflict: an opportunity for justice or additional victimization?"

Summary: This PhD thesis seeks to understand why the crime of rape against men in armed conflict, when prosecuted in international criminal jurisdictions, tends to be qualified as torture or cruel or inhuman treatment rather than rape. In order to provide answers, the thesis will turn to gender and feminism as analytical tools and attempt to uncover the gendered nature of international law and international criminal jurisdictions with regards to the rape of men in conflict situations.
