%X Prosecution of sexual violence in international
criminal law requires not only an understanding of the mechanisms
employed to prosecute sexual violence but also a critical analysis of
the factors facilitating perpetuation of such crimes in armed conflicts.
The extrapolations laid out in this essay delve into the jurisprudence
of international criminal law pertaining to sexual and gender based
violence followed by the core question of this essay – has the
entrenchment of sexual violence as international crimes in the Rome
Statute been successful to address such violence in armed conflicts?
