Abstract

This article provides an analysis of a number of judgments which feature sexual and gender crimes in domestic prosecutions in Argentina. The authors analyze eleven decisions where individuals have been convicted of these crimes and argue that two major lines of jurisprudence have emerged tackling gender violence perpetrated in clandestine detention centers during the military dictatorship. The judgments illustrate the domestication of international criminal legal principles and their influence on national proceedings. While these judgments are welcome and important, the authors also draw attention to some of the on-going silences in the jurisprudence and the challenges which remain.
