11 November 2017

In Iraq, investigating the numerous and unique cases of sexual violence has been a “very difficult” experience.

That’s according to Rabiaa, former investigator for UN Women missions in Iraq and Syria on sexual violence in conflict-related areas.

Rabiaa talked to Agnese Pastorino about the strategies and findings of her research.
