Rethinking ‘Sexual Exploitation’ in UN Peacekeeping Operations

  • Olivera Simic


This chapter reflects on the main findings of this book, arguing that they demonstrate the need for a revision of the SGB in consultation with the people directly affected by its provisions, namely local women and peacekeepers. In this conclusion, I argue that future UN policies about sexual conduct in peacekeeping operations (PKOs) should be informed by local women’s knowledge and peacekeeper’s views, and also be grounded in the framework of international human rights law. Finally, I identify six considerations which will, I hope, provide guidance for UN policy makers in the future.
