UNMIK launches the United Nations’ “Zero Tolerance” policy towards sexual exploitation and sexual abuse
Pristina, 29 November 2016 – UNMIK’s Office of the Strategic Communications and Public Affairs (OSCPA) today launched the United Nations’ “Zero Tolerance” policy campaign towards sexual exploitation and sexual abuse.
The UN expects that all peacekeeping personnel adhere to the highest standards of behavior, and conduct themselves in a professional and disciplined manner at all times. Consequently, UNMIK published this Public Service announcement for raising awareness and it recommends if you know any United Nations worker engaged in such activity, please contact UNMIK.
In addition, the campaign is running in Radio Ophelia 107.2 FM and social media.
In the words of the United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, “The United Nations, and I personally, are profoundly committed to a zero- tolerance policy against sexual exploitation or abuse by our own personnel. This means zero complacency. When we receive credible allegations, we ensure that they are looked into fully. It means zero impunity.”
