The data are mostly based on the book „Sexual Violence in Armed Conflict, Global Overview and Implications for the Security Sector“ by Megan Bastick, Karin Grimm and Rahel Kunz. BICC has complemented and updated the data on wartime rape from other sources. Due to the difficulty of obtaining reliable data on the use of sexual violence (rape) in wars and conflicts, this data set does not claim to be complete.
The information and data of each module are primarily made available as selectable map layers and are complemented by texts and graphs. The map layers can be found on the right hand side and are listed according to themes and sub-themes.
