#36 Gender-Based Crimes

Wo steht das Völkerstrafrecht heute?


Content-Warnung: Diese Episode enthält Schilderungen sexualisierter Gewalt.

Inwieweit schützt das Völkerstrafrecht heute vor gender-based crimes? Was genau umfasst dieser Begriff überhaupt?

Isabel Lischewski skizziert die Entwicklung der völkerstrafrechtlichen Anerkennung von gender-based crimes und im Interview spricht Jan-Henrik Hinselmann mit Susann Aboueldahab über die Theorie und Praxis dieses Rechtsgebiets.
