Sexual Violence by Peacekeepers Against Children and Other Civilians: A practical guide for advocacy

CRIN, the Child Rights International Network, globally monitors children’s rights violations and advocates for change.

Multiple reports of sexual violence by UN peacekeepers, most recently in CAR, have garnered international attention and outrage. The UN has taken steps to respond, but CRIN finds that the steps so far have fallen short of what is needed to ensure the safety of civilians, particularly children, from UN peacekeepers.

At the request of NGOs and some governments, CRIN has explored what the next steps could and should be. This guide provides 10 recommendations for next steps to safeguard children and other civilians in the long-term. It suggests how to achieve these recommendations and with whom to partner.
