Lord Ahmad, the Prime Minister’s Special Representative on Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict said:
The UK is at the forefront of global efforts to tackle conflict-related sexual violence through our Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict Initiative (PSVI). We are committed to ensuring survivors and their views, needs, advice and expertise are at the heart of the international response.
The UK was due to host the Time for Justice: Putting Survivors First conference on 18 to 20 November 2019. However, with the UK general election now called for 12 December, the government has taken the decision to postpone the conference until 2020.
Nevertheless, the UK remains committed to strengthening justice and accountability and supporting all survivors whilst tackling the root causes of conflict-related sexual violence.
