Acknowledgments

Women’s Initiatives for Gender Justice (WIGJ) is very grateful to all contributors to The Hague Principles on Sexual Violence. Thanks to all contributors, these Principles - comprising the Civil Society Declaration, the International Criminal Law Guidelines and the Key Principles for Policy Makers - will contribute to advancing accountability for sexual violence, including by ensuring a better prevention and response to this violence.

WIGJ would therefore like to thank:

All the survivors who took part in the consultations, who shared their experiences, expressed their voices within the Call It What It Is campaign, but also all the survivors who have the courage and the strength to speak out to advance justice.
