William Hague and Angelina Jolie marked the launch of the London School of Economics' new Centre for Women, Peace, and Security by discussing the importance of academic research that will provide leading research on the use of rape in war. Citing the need to have a deeper understanding of sexual violence in conflict the two discussed the ways that the Centre will support sound policymaking, prevention strategies, and increasingly effective strategies to end impunity for perpetrators.
