Title:Transformative Reparations for Survivors of Sexual Violence in Post-Conflict Societies
Publication:November 28th, 2018
Guatemala Reparations Sexual Violence Transitional Justice TJ Gender Latin America
In this Policy Brief, we present an analysis of the impact of sexual violence during the armed conflict in Guatemala and the limited measures of reparation offered by the State to the survivors of this great affliction. We analyse the transformative approach to guaranteeing the participation of women and generating institutional and social changes in order to prevent violations of this nature. This Policy Brief is based on reparation measures offered by the National Reparations Program and the measures that have been dictated by Guatemalan courts; it analyses the reparations sentence for the case of sexual and domestic slavery of indigenous Maya Q’eqchi women in the community of Sepur Zarco, and is complemented by other reparations experiences in Colombia and Tunisia. It also includes a series of recommendations for Guatemalan authorities.
