Perennial “unintended consequences of peacekeeping”: Towards strengthening UN mechanisms to prevent and combat the crime of sexual exploitation and abuse, March 2016

APSTAThe APSTA Peacekeeping This Month is pleased to share with you the Issues Briefing by Colonel Festus B. Aboagye (Retired)*, APSTA Chief Executive Officer (CEO), titled“Perennial “unintended consequences of peacekeeping”: Towards strengthening UN mechanisms to prevent and combat the crime of sexual exploitation and abuse”.

The brief examines the prospects of effective implementation of the United Nations Security Council Resolution 2272 (2016) on preventing and combating Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (SEA) by United Nations (UN) and other peacekeepers that was passed on 11 March 2016, just three days after the International Women’s Day on 8 March with its indirect campaign theme: Pledge For Parity (in the celebration of the social, economic, cultural and political) achievement.

The author contextualises the review of key aspects of the resolution against the trajectory of the UN’s policy development around SEA, and makes observations on possible challenges to the effective implementation of the resolution. It proffers broad policy recommendations in that regard.
