The International Criminal Tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and for Rwanda, and the Special Court for Sierra Leone have enhanced the role of the international criminal justice system in providing accountability for violence against women in armed conflict. The Rome Statute of 1998 establishing the International Criminal Court includes several types of gender-based crimes (see sect. VI).
