Critically, analyse the intersection between gender, crime and violence through a discussion of:
Why are gendered war crimes so common? Why is rape so often used as a weapon of war?
You will be assessed based on your ability to analyse the 3 elements of the question (1. Gender, 2. Crime, 3. Violence). The aim is to show your ability to synthesize information and to show the interconnectedness between these 3 key notions (1. Gender, 2. Crime, 3. Violence) and your chosen topic (Why are gendered war crimes so common? Why is rape so often used as a weapon of war?)
