The themes that need addressing relate, but are not limited to:
- Definitional and factual issues concerning conflict-related sexual violence, enslavement and human trafficking in situations of conflict for the prupose of sexual violence or exploitation, such as the definition of the crimes, the perpetrators and victims, and the consequences of the crimes.
- Prevention of the crimes, from different perspectives, such as the role of faith-based and traditional leaders, intergovernmental organisations, NGOs, awareness raising campaigns, and peacekeeping initiatives.
- Addressing the crimes: legal and non-legal mechanisms, such as transitional justice mechanisms and mock tribunals, and reparation efforts, including socio-psychological and medical care and tackling stigma.
- Case studies (contemporary countries or regions of concern), including a discussion from a particular point of view, such as the situation in refugee camps.
