A Study of Gender and Reparation in postwar Guatemala, led by Professor Alison Crosby (York University, Canada) and Professor M. Brinton Lykes

The Gender and Reparations: Understanding Women's Struggles for Justice Historical Memory and Redress project is a project conducted jointly with York University in Toronto.  It is led by Prof. Alison Crosby of York U. and BC CHRIJ Co-Director Prof. M. Brinton Lykes.

This project examines the nature and forms of reparation for women survivors of sexual violence during the 36-year long armed conflict in Guatemala, within a context of ongoing structural impunity, militarism and gender-based violence.
