Welcome to the United Nations. It's your world.

Protection from Sexual Exploitation and Abuse


Sexual exploitation and abuse represents a catastrophic failure of protection. It brings harm to those whom we – the UN, NGOs or other international organizations – are mandated to protect and jeopardizes the reputation of our organizations. It also violates universally recognized international legal norms and standards.

As a staff member of the UN, NGOs and other international organizations, you must sustain ethical behaviour in your professional and, even, private life. Below is a checklist and key documents to inform you of your obligation and relevant information on protection from sexual exploitation and abuse.
