I.      Introduction
Men and boys are targeted for sexual violence during armed conflict or
other forms of mass atrocity, but this fact has received relatively little
attention within the international community.' The recent conflicts taking
place in Syria and Libya provide stark illustrations of sexual violence
directed against males. For example, the February 2013 report of the United
Nations (UN)-appointed Independent International Commission of Inquiry
on Syria examined numerous reports of sexual violence taking place during
Associate Professor, University of Western Ontario Faculty of Law. I wish to thank Alexandra
MacKenzie for her superb research assistance, Prof. Margaret Martin for her helpful comments,
and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada for funding my research.
