CARE is pleased to be participating in the Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict in London from June 10-13. The summit brings together leaders from around the world to commit to ending sexual violence in conflict.  The summit comes at a key moment in international efforts to end sexual violence in conflict, including commitments made under UNSCR 1325, 1820 and their successor resolutions, and the UN Declaration of Commitment to End Sexual Violence in Conflict.
