Abstract

This interdisciplinary article uses connectivity as a framework for thinking about resilience and its relevance for conflict-related sexual violence (CRSV). It specifically draws on ecology literature, where connectivity refers to interactions and movement within and between ecosystems. Viewed through the lens of connectivity, thus, resilience becomes a ‘moving’ story of dynamic and multiple connectivities between individuals and their social ecologies (environments). This approach to resilience fundamentally challenges neoliberal critiques of the concept. In particular, the article emphasizes important linkages between connectivity, resilience and care, and it argues that supporting victims-/survivors of CRSV also means extending care to their social ecologies.
