This chapter sets out the institutional strategies the Office of the Prosecutor (OTP) pursued to overcome obstacles and identifies institutional policy priorities for future prosecution offices. Such strategies include using ‘gender focal points’ and other dedicated mechanisms for focusing attention on sexual violence crimes, developing a comprehensive written policy for sexual violence crimes, addressing gender bias within the OTP, developing an effective investigation strategy for sexual violence crimes, developing effective legal strategies for prosecuting sexual violence crimes, ensuring effective dissemination and implementation of OTP policies and strategies on sexual violence crimes, identifying gaps in the OTP’s policies and strategies on sexual violence crimes, and focusing on sexual violence crimes over time.
