While much is now known about the multiple forms of gender-based violence to which people are subjected in (post-)conflict spaces, there remains a relative lack of knowledge about how those experiencing them perceive the interconnections between such forms of violence, as well as about how these perceived interconnections are enmeshed in gendered power relations. This paper analyses group interviews carried out with male and female refugees living in Kampala to scrutinise the complex interweaving between gender-based violence and heteropatriarchal gender norms and power relations in (post-)conflict spaces. Participants repeatedly drew causal connections between sexual violence perpetrated by enemy armed men against women and men and subsequent intimate partner violence. Our discussion of the logics underpinning these perceived causal connections enables close analysis of the shifting and contingent ways in which various forms of gender-based violence are understood as imbricated in one another and implicated in shifting gender norms. This enables us to examine some of the complex ways in which gender-based violence reverberates through gender norms and power relations in (post-)conflict contexts.
