Investigating Rape at the International Criminal Court: The Impact of Trauma

Ellie Smith, 2012

The conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) has been characterised by the widespread and systematic perpetration of rape and other forms of sexual violence. Rape has been committed by all actors in the conflict, including those operating in the Ituri region of the country, and the use of rape by Lubanga’s Union des Patriotes Congolais (UPC) in particular has been widely reported and documented by the UN and NGOs alike.
