- What are the rules for treating prisoners of war and civilians in war conflicts?
- What physical, psychological and social effects do the victims of wartime sexual violence carry away with them?
- Is this violence preventable, what are its causes and how is this topic handled by journalists?
Although everybody knows about this, however, it is difficult to talk about it. Even the 21st century war conflicts are accompanied with sexual violence, and the war in Ukraine is not an exception. Therefore, Sts Cyril and Methodius Faculty of Theology at Palacky University Olomouc together with Ukrainian Catholic University in Lviv are organizing a round table discussion on the topic of Wartime Sexual Violence.
This event, with an international overlap, takes place on 12th September 2022 in the CMTF UP building in Univerzitní Street, but also online on ZOOM or Facebook. The debate will be moderated by doc. Dominik Opatrný, Vice Dean for Foreign Relations.
