The entrance of alleged non-feminist (or not-feminist enough) suspects into the conflict related sexual violence (CRSV) field has added crucial knowledge that previously was largely missing in the field. The field of sexual violence against men (SVAM) is marked by a number of methodological challenges, emanating from our preconceptions as scholars – and relatedly, the difficulties to access survivor narratives. Moreover, another major challenge is to recognise and include sexual violence against combatants. Given that research indicates that the levels of SVAM against military men is often higher than that committed against civilians, attending to SVAM committed within and against men in other military organisations appears paramount. Moreover, one of the most urgent tasks ahead appears to be to further unpack the concept of SVAM itself. This challenge remains, of course, in relation to CRSV against women. The astounding variation in the forms and contexts in which SVAM is committed require a further unpacking of the category of SVAM itself.
