How do we end the climate of impunity and ensure perpetrators of sexual violence are brought to justice? What can humanitarian organizations do to support survivors of sexual violence while preserving the organization's neutrality? And what does “justice” mean for survivors?

These were some of the questions raised and debated in front of an engaged audience of over 200 people at “Justice denied? Access to justice for victims of sexual violence”, a panel event on Wednesday, 11 September in Geneva. The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) hosted the event, co-sponsored by CERAH, Médècins Sans Frontières (MSF), the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), and the Refugee Law Project.
