William Hague will use tomorrow's #G8 foreign ministers' meeting to discuss his initiative to tackle sexual violence in conflict.

The UK propose three elements to increase conviction rates, a team of  experts to be deployed to conflict-affect areas; clear international protocol on gathering evidence and for rape and sexual assault to be declared a ''grave breech'' of the Geneva convention.  

Will it work? Join the debate on the poverty matters blog: http://gu.com/p/3f2ey/tw
