Campaign for Vetting of the UN Peacekeepers

 

The United Nations is employer of one of the largest armies in the world. It has more than 97,000 UN uniformed personnel (Military and Police) coming from over 110 countries. However, there is no vetting of those who are selected and deployed to perform duties for and on behalf of the United Nations. In the midst of reports of gross human rights violations especially sexual abuse by the UN peacekeepers, the United Nations introduced “Human Rights Screening of United Nations Personnel” in December 2012. Asian Centre for Human Rights in cooperation with Advocacy Forum of Nepal and Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre (CISLAC) of Nigeria has conducted country research on the track records of Bangladesh, India, Nepal and Nigeria with respect to the UN Peacekeepers. Their human rights records remain tainted and the UN has a long way to go to remove these taints.
