This week, the UK will seek a clear statement of intent and concrete commitments to begin to address the culture of impunity for those who use rape and sexual violence as a weapon of war. This will include support for a new international protocol on the investigation and documentation of sexual violence in conflict and practical assistance in countries affected by this problem.
Our generation has an opportunity to confront the use of rape and sexual violence in war. Now is the time to act to prevent and address sexual violence in order to resolve conflicts and build sustainable peace.
We are tweeting on the issues from @FCOHumanRights - use the hashtags #timetoact and #sexualviolence to add your voice.
