Event on Transformative Reparations for Victims of Conflict Related Sexual Violence in Guatemala

On 20 and 21 November 2018, the II Meeting on dignified and transformative reparation for survivors of sexual violence was held in Guatemala. More than 150 people participated, including survivors, women, attorneys, judges and authorities of the Indigenous People. Guatemala has one of the highest femicide and sexual violence rates in the world. That is why it is necessary to establish deep changes in the justice system to guarantee the rights of all the victims, of the internal armed conflict and in the present, to a dignified treatment that does not victimize them again, with cultural relevance that can fully repair. During the event we presented the Policy Brief "Transformative Reparations for survivors of sexual violence in post-conflict societies".

Los días 20 y 21 de noviembre, se realizó el II Encuentro sobre reparación digna y transformadora para sobrevivientes de violencia sexual. Participaron más de 150 personas: sobrevivientes, mujeres, fiscales, juezas y autoridades ancestrales de los Pueblos Indígenas. Guatemala tiene uno de los índices más altos de femicidio y violencia sexual en el mundo. Por eso es necesario hacer cambios profundos en el sistema de justicia para garantizar el derecho de toda víctima, sea del conflicto armado interno o actual, a un trato digno, no revictimizante, con pertinencia cultural que repare integralmente a las mujeres. Durante el evento compartimos el Policy Brief "Reparación transformadora para sobrevivientes de violencia sexual en sociedades post conflicto".
