In 2010 Margot Wallström, the first UN special representative on sexual violence in war and conflict, together with her team used their mandate to develop and lobby for UN resolution 1960. A strategic tool that gives the international community the capacity to effectively prosecute those responsible for committing or planning sexual violence in war and conflict.
The film, Resolution, follows Wallström and her colleagues as they visit rape survivors and frontline activists in conflict areas across the globe. During 10 short months they shine the spotlight on instances where rape is used as a strategic weapon of war and raise the issue to the top of the UN Security Council's agenda.
A movie by Marika Griehsel, Giant Film Production in association with SVT Dokumentär.
