Model Legislative Provisions and Guidance on Investigation and Prosecution of Conflict-Related Sexual Violence
The Model Legislative Provisions and Guidance on Investigation and Prosecution of Conflict-Related Sexual Violence was produced by the Office of the Special Representative of the Secretary-General on Sexual Violence in Conflict (“OSRSG-SVC”). It benefited from the work of Maxine Marcus and Kathy Roberts, Co-Directors of Partners in Justice International (“PJI”) who were its lead drafters. Working under the auspices of and in close collaboration with the OSRSG-SVC, the drafting team consulted with experts, practitioners, and litigators both inside and outside the UN system, as well as directly with victims and survivors. An early draft of the OSRSG-SVC’s Model Legislative Provisions and Guidance was also subject to a “peer review” process facilitated by the Core Team of the UN Global Focal Point for Rule of Law (“GFP”). The OSRSG-SVC thanks the Core Team of the GFP and those GFP entities that provided comments during the “peer review” process.
