This week Samantha Knights QC is joined by Christina Lamb OBE (Chief Foreign Correspondent of Sunday Times) and Caroline Buisman (International Criminal Defence and Human Rights Lawyer at Stapert Advocaten). Based on Christina Lamb’s new book ‘Our Bodies Their Battlefield: What War Does to Women’, together they discuss how and why in modern warfare rape is used by combatants as a weapon of war, why this aspect of conflict has been largely untold, and assesses how it has been treated by international law and tribunals.
