Sexual Exploitation and Abuse in Peacekeeping Operations Improving Victims’ Access to Reparation, Support and Assistance – The Redress Trust

“This is a report about the widespread and enduring problem of sexual exploitation and abuse by peacekeepers and other personnel associated with peace operations. The focus of the report is directed at answering one question: ‘what happens to the victims’? The report does not focus on why this phenomenon continues to happen despite the introduction of zero-tolerance policies, induction and training programmes and relatively robust codes of conduct. Nor does it place emphasis on why the reams of international bureaucrats, officials from troop-contributing countries and others have failed to come up with fail safe ways to investigate and prosecute the persons responsible for the crimes. These failings, while far from solved, have been analysed in some detail by others.”
