Conduct of peacekeepers ans peacekeeping operations

Efforts to strengthen the conduct of peacekeepers and peacekeeping operations are focused on conduct and discipline measures, implementation of the UN Human Rights Due Diligence Policy and sound environmental management practices. Key recommendations include:

18.Upholding human rights. The Secretariat and Member States should provide further support so that the Secretariat and field missions are adequately resourced with experts to ensure the Missions are complying. Member States should ensure rigorous application of the UN Human Rights Screening policy in order to ensure member states do not deploy known offenders. Similarly, the Secretariat and field missions should continue to provide further support, through the deployment of experts, to ensure missions are complying with the Human Rights Due Diligence Policy when cooperating with national, regional and other parallel or partner forces.

19. Supporting victims of sexual exploitation and abuse. The Secretariat and member states should ensure that the needs of victims of sexual exploitation and abuse by UN personnel are more effectively prioritized, including through efforts to identify mechanisms to increase accountability and more transparent reporting and engagement with civil society.
