Purpose: The project will investigate the legal treatment of marital rape in Canada and analyze the transferability of the Canadian experience with the criminalization of marital rape to the African context. The project will look at the differences in the legal treatment before and after its criminalization. The research will demonstrate room for improvement with respect to increased understanding of judicial constructs of consent within the context of marital rape which will incorporate recognition of women's human rights. The examination of the Canadian experience with the criminalization of marital rape will allow to assess critically the judicial treatment of sexual violence in intimate relationships.
