Understanding Evil

This chapter analyzes the motives behind the rapes in Bosnia during the war. The rapes were assaults on individuals' bodies and selves. The purpose was not just to harm a woman or young girl's body, but also to destroy a person's sense of self as a free and self-conscious person. Rape was also used to destroy the woman's relation to her family and community, in part by provoking her family and community to reject her.

Keywords:   Bosnia, rape, evil, war crimes, women, sense of self
