Sexual and reproductive violence (SRV) perpetrated against women during war or under
authoritarian regimes is one of the most severe manifestations of gender-based violence.
The authors ask how governments in new or reforming democracies hope to repair SRV
and how state programs for reparation might be conceptualized and delivered. By examining
the cases of Guatemala and Peru, they explore the problematic of repairing damage
caused by SRV and comment on prospects for redress to victims in each country. (Authors Abstract).
