International Humanitarian Law

III.3 States must educate their population on CRSV

Armed forces, medical personnel and chaplains. 'In time of peace as in time of war', States must disseminate IHL 'as widely as possible' (language which does not afford States absolute discretion), 'in particular to the armed fighting forces, the medical personnel and the chaplains'. They must include IHL in military instruction programmes. Specifically, commanders must ensure that armed forces under their command are aware of their obligations under IHL.

In addition, States should make IHL known to persons empowered to exercise governmental authority, as well as persons acting on their instructions or under their direction or control. States may assign the task of disseminating IHL to State organs or, if needed, other persons and groups which can be given a mandate at the national level to assist the State in the fulfilment of this obligation. National Societies can play a significant role in disseminating IHL.

Under article 7, States 'undertake to adopt immediate and effective measures, particularly in the fields of teaching, education, culture and information, with a view to combating prejudices which lead to racial discrimination'.

States should promote 'understanding, tolerance and friendship among nations and racial or ethnical groups', and propagate 'the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the United Nations Declaration on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, and the Convention'.

Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CAT)

III.7 States must educate their population on CRSV

The obligation to take effective preventive measures goes beyond the measures enumerated in the CAT. For example, the Committee has emphasised that the general population should be educated on the history, scope, and necessity 'of the non-derogable prohibition of torture and ill-treatment'. States should:

    Conduct major information campaigns to raise awareness among the population (including parties to a conflict) that acts of sexual violence are offences under criminal law, to break the taboos on sex crimes and to eliminate the stigmatisation and exclusion of victims/survivors; Raise awareness about violence against women and children. States should ensure that children are educated about violence against women and children by 'training teachers, using new educational technology and developing training courses, curricula and textbook content'; Widely disseminate reports submitted by States to the Committee and the Committee's concluding observations, in appropriate languages (including Indigenous) and through official websites, media and non-governmental organisations.

International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR)

III.3 States should educate their population on CRSV

Under article 2(2), States should adopt laws or other measures to give effect to the rights recognised in the Covenant, including measures to combat entrenched patriarchal attitudes and gender role stereotypes, which are conducive to serious violations of the rights and integrity of women and girls. States should facilitate a 'national dialogue on sexual violence against women to increase the visibility of the issue and the status of victims', and conduct public awareness-raising campaigns to identify the causes and consequences of violence against women.

Training. Under article 2(2), States should 'take appropriate measures to raise awareness of the Covenant among judges, lawyers and prosecutors at all levels, especially in autonomous regions, to ensure that its provisions are taken into account by national courts'.
