Abstract

This Policy Paper represented an important step within interna- tional criminal law and has the potential to transform how gendered acts within genocide, mass atrocity, and war are prosecuted. The basis for the policy was the explicit inclusion in the Rome Statute of the ICC of an expansive list of sexual and gender-based violations, including "rape, sexual slavery, enforced prostitution, forced pregnancy, enforced sterilization," other forms of sexual violence of comparable gravity and gender-based persecution. This was the first time in international criminal law that sexual and gender-based acts had been this extensively enumerated as crimes.
