PRIO has long been a leader in researching gender-based violence in conflicts; this issue has been the subject of extensive research interest at PRIO. For that reason, PRIO researchers were thrilled to see the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize go to Dr. Denis Mukwege and Nadia Murad for their work combating sexual violence. We have compiled a list of PRIO-related publications and researchers relevant to this topic in anticipation of increased interest.
