Secretary-General’s report on “Special Measures for the Protection from Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (SEA):  A New Approach”

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has outlined a new victim-centered approach to prevent and respond to sexual exploitation and abuse in a new report “Special Measures for the Protection from Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (SEA):  A New Approach” that calls for financial penalties for failure to investigate allegations and bans on alcohol and fraternization for peacekeepers. In his report, Guterres proposed that payments to countries that fail to investigate allegations involving their troops should be withheld, and that those amounts could be instead directed to a victims' trust fund.
