Details about the research 

During the first year of the russia’s war against Ukraine, the Analytical Center JurFem collected information on various violations of the rights of civilians. Later, a group of experts analyzed these violations through a gender lens and tried to find ways to protect the rights of war victims. The analytical research “Gender Dimensions of War” contains 10 expert articles that reveal gender aspects in various areas in which war crimes and violations by the russian federation were recorded: deportations, destruction of infrastructure, sexual violence, as well as opportunities to restore justice for the survivors.

Based on the findings of the research, the experts proposed recommendations regarding the identification and investigation of war crimes, crimes against humanity, and the crime of genocide committed by the russian federation in Ukraine. The proposed recommendations will form the basis of the further work of both public organizations and authorities, including law enforcement agencies.
