Abstract:To explore the link between gender, sexual violence, HIV/AIDS and human security in sub-Saharan Africa, in particular southern Africa, the Africa Institute of South Africa convened a seminar on 23 July 2009 in Pretoria. This volume presents a collection of papers presented at the seminar. Two central themes were discussed. The first focuses on the impact of HIV/AIDS on the security sector with contributions by Martin Rupiya on the 'unintended' effects of relying upon uniformed forces as 'champions' to mainstreaming preventative measures against HIV/AIDS, Kondwani Chirambo on the impact of HIV-related deaths among local officials, Tebello Constance Mosikili and Claudia Forster-Towne on HIV/AIDS, gender issues and their impact on policing in South Africa, and Jacqueline Nzisabira and Claudia Forster-Towne on the implications for the security sector. Drawing from reports of increased sexual violence in the region, the second theme examined human security from a gendered perspective: Geoffrey Setswe investigates the practice of multiple concurrent partners and its contribution to HIV, while Tsitsi Masvawure addresses the role of sexual and gender-based violence at the University of Zimbawe.
