Lord Ahmad, the Prime Minister’s Special Representative on Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict, said:
The UK remains at the forefront of the global efforts to tackle conflict-related sexual violence through our Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict Initiative (PSVI). We are committed to ensuring survivors and their views, needs, and expertise are at the heart of the international response.
Due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone the Time for Justice: Putting Survivors First conference.
The UK remains committed to strengthening justice and accountability, and supporting all survivors, while tackling the root causes of conflict-related sexual violence. We will continue to work for this with our international partners, agencies and civil society organisations around the world. We will confirm dates for a rescheduled conference in due course.
