Model Legislative Provisions and Guidance on Investigation and Prosecution of Conflict-Related SGBV

The Model Legislative Provisions and Guidance have been informed by national practice from every UN Regional Group. They are intended to be a resource in assisting State legislators, international organizations providing legal assistance to requesting States, practitioners such as prosecutors, investigators, and lawyers, as well as public agencies and non-governmental, community-based, and civil society organizations, in implementing a robust legal and procedural framework in compliance with international norms and obligations.

The Model Legislative Provisions seek to remove barriers to access to justice for victims, survivors, and their families. These provisions significantly advance a victim and survivor-centric codification of both substantive and procedural criminal law on conflict-related sexual violence, while also allowing for future progressive developments in this area of law.
