What We Do

The Office of the Victims’ Rights Advocate seeks to put the rights and dignity of victims of sexual exploitation and abuse by UN and related personnel at the forefront of the UN’s prevention and response efforts. We work with all entities of the UN system so victims get the assistance and support they need.  We also work in collaboration with Government institutions, civil society, including national and legal and human rights organizations to build networks of support and help ensure that the full effect of local laws, including remedies for victims, are brought to bear.
