First, this paper will discuss the historical and societal basis for corrective rape, then, its scope and presence globally. Subsequently, the paper will introduce the laws and policies that should address the problem of corrective rape, and how the South African state and citizens violate them, including, first, the international human rights framework that existed before corrective rape came into the spotlight; then, it will address the recent developments that were instituted in response to violations of LGBTI rights globally. Finally, the paper will provide specific laws and policies that should be implemented in order to provide effective and durable solutions to the problem.
