CAPAZ working paper (6-2019): “The didactic management of sexualised violence in war. A look through the wars of dissolution in Yugoslavia as an example”
Based within a historical and educational perspective, and using the example of the Yugoslav wars of dissolution –mainly the Bosnian war of 1992-1995—, this working paper addresses the question of the extent to which sexual or sexualised violence, as perpetrated en masse in the course of wars, civil wars, civil war-type conflicts, and comparable forms of armed conflict, constitutes an appropriate and significant object of historical learning.
