UN report on stopping peacekeeper sex crimes fails, say critics

March 14, 2016

Emma Phillips talks to The Current’s Anna Maria Tremonti about the United Nations resolution to tackle the issue of sexual assault committed by its peacekeepers.

Emma acted as counsel for the Independent Panel on Sexual Exploitation and Abuse by International Peacekeeping Forces in the Central African Republic.  Today she spoke to Anna Maria Tremonti on CBC’s The Current about her concerns that the UN report does not deal with the culture within the UN that allowed the assaults to occur and questions whether the new measures proposed by the Secretary General will be effective in ending the abuse.
