Rape as a weapon of war: what the law can do

Rape as a weapon of war: what the law can do | HSIE Teaching Tools | Scoop.it

An article reflecting on the effectiveness of the International Criminal Court in dealing with the use of rape as a weapon of war.

 

Questions

 

1. What is the legal response mentioned to deal with rape as a weapon of war?

 

2. Summarise TWO limitations of the legal responses?

 

3. Read the following quote from the article:

 

'Since it is possible for the ICC to promote better domestic prosecutions, it can also, and should, encourage domestic accountability for sexual violence crimes.'

 

How is the concept of state sovereignty relevant to the ICC and 'domestic prosecutions'?

This map shows tha tthere are an overwhelimg amount of Arabs especially in centeral Syria. And then on the coast lline it is mostly mixed with pink representing the overwhlming other majority.

Joseph Thacker 's curator insight, April 2, 2014 8:11 PM

It appears from this article that Syria is a complicated country. The map shows the different ethnic and religious groups of Syria, along with other groups, all of which live within a small area. Syria, along with other countries within the Middle East have been faced with one serious issue or another. Many different people live within a very small area; those people practice different religions and are ethnically and culturally different. Unfortunately, being different in this part of the world may get you killed.   

Paige Therien's curator insight, May 4, 2014 1:25 PM

Maps such as this one are very valuable when trying to understand conflict.  In Syria and the greater Levant area, unbalanced power and representation in politics is the result of many different religious and ethnic groups living in such close proximity each other, allowing conflict to become very invasive.

It is very interesting to explore new cities and their sky views
Victoria McNamara's curator insight, December 12, 2013 12:41 PM

After taking this quiz I realized I could not really identify most of these cities. I could tell some of them were European from the look of the buildings. I also thought a few more were cities in the United States but there was only Dallas. In my opinion these cities are even more spectacular than some of our major cities.
