The Future of ‘Zero Tolerance’ Policies in Peacekeeping

The Future of ‘Zero Tolerance’ Policies in Peacekeeping

Melbourne Law School, Level 9, Room 920 | 185 Pelham St. Carlton

This workshop will revisit the UN Secretary-General’s 2003 Bulletin (SGB) which elaborated a policyof ‘zero tolerance’ of sexual exploitation and abuse by UN staff in peace operations. The regulatory impact of the Bulletin has been questioned, given continuing serious allegations of abuse in a number of operations. The Bulletin has also been the subject of sustained critique for its paternalist approach to sexual activity. This workshop will assess the theory and practice associated with the Bulletin and consider other forms of regulation of peacekeeping sex.

The aim of 0f the Workshop is to identify practical directions for reform of the SGB.
