About the International Campaign to Stop Rape & Gender Violence in Conflict
Organizations and individuals around the world have worked tirelessly to amplify the voices of survivors and stop rape. The International Campaign to Stop Rape & Gender Violence in Conflict unites these organizations and individuals into a powerful and coordinated effort for change.
They are the first ever global collaboration between Nobel Peace Laureates, international advocacy organizations, and groups working at the regional and community levels in conflict.
The Campaign demands urgent and bold political leadership to prevent rape in conflict, to protect civilians and rape survivors, and to call for justice for all—including effective prosecution of those responsible. These three pillars of the Campaign—PREVENT, PROTECT, PROSECUTE—signal a comprehensive effort to stop rape in conflict.

The first four focus countries—Burma, Colombia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya—represent places where immediate, coordinated action is needed. Within these four countries, their united efforts can make the biggest impact in the shortest amount of time.
