Abstract:

The article discusses the sexual exploitation and abuse of women and girls by peacekeepers during their missions and the measures taken by the United Nations (UN) to tackle such problem. The UN Security Councils adopted the Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security in 2000 which dealt with rape and other forms of sexual abuse and violence in armed conflict situations. It attributes the prevalence of sexual abuse and exploitation to vulnerability of local populations to such attacks.
