Children living in countries affected by conflict and natural disaster are being sexually exploited and abused by the very people hired to help them – aid workers and peacekeepers. Almost as shocking is the general silence surrounding the abuse. Children and their families are not speaking out because of fear and powerlessness. And international organisations are failing to respond effectively to allegations of abuse levelled against them. “No One to Turn To” seeks to move the debate on and reinvigorate efforts to address this appalling problem. This report examines the chronic under-reporting of abuse committed by aid workers and peacekeepers, looks at why it persists and proposes new solutions to tackle it.
