Abstract and Keywords

This chapter assesses the extent to which UN Security Council Resolutions 1325 on WPS takes into account the international human rights framework against torture and ill-treatment of women and girls, notably the obligations of prohibition, prosecution, punishment, and protection against different forms of torture, including sexual violence and rape. Moreover, it examines whether the obligations under the UN Convention against Torture vis-à-vis women and girls are reflected in post-conflict situations, especially peacekeeping operations. This chapter ultimately seeks to determine how UN human rights mechanisms with a specific mandate relating to torture have addressed situations specific to women and girls in conflict and post-conflict situations.

Keywords: Convention against Torture, sexual violence, rape, post-conflict situations
