The chapters in this two-part volume deal with a range of gender-based violence issues that are making news headlines daily. In Part A the contributors address the ways in which wartime rape is treated in international courts, why and how the gender language used at the United Nations matters, how asylum-seekers fleeing gendered violence are treated, how the press and the courts frame rape and other acts of violence, perceptions and responses of and to disabled and LGBTQ people who are victims of gendered violence, the ways we respond to the perpetrators of violence, and the relationship of military service to nationalism. The focus of the volume is global in the sense that international law and tribunals are discussed and norms and attitudes from global samples are compared. A variety of qualitative and quantitative methods including interviews, textual analysis, autoethnography, and secondary analysis of large sample surveys are employed. Each of the chapters has theoretical as well as policy or social implications.
