Sexual Exploitation and Prostitution in UN Peacekeeping Operations

  • Olivera Simic


This chapter brings the voices of the people directly affected by the SGB into the discussion about whether prostitution should be understood as sexual exploitation, or as a form of employment (sex work). From the responses to the questions related to sexual exploitation and prostitution, three themes emerged in all the Groups, which I have used to organise my discussion: defining sexual exploitation, views about whether prostitution is sexual exploitation, and perspectives on the SGB’s definition of sexual exploitation, which includes any exchange of money for sex, regardless of consent and the adequacy of the remuneration.
