TIME TO ACT
New Zealanders are urged to join a global movement aimed at ending sexual violence in conflict zones.
Representatives from more than 100 governments, the heads of eight UN agencies and nearly a thousand experts have met in London to launch the first international protocol on how to document and investigate sexual violence in conflict. The initiative is spear-headed by UK Foreign Secretary William Hague and special envoy for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees Angelina Jolie. New Zealand was represented by Justice Minister Judith Collins.
