Tackling SEA in the context of UN peacekeeping missions

As part of our ongoing advocacy initiative, Keeping Children Safe led a series of seminars in partnership with the University of Reading and the British Embassies in Argentina and Uruguay, to address the issue of sexual exploitation and abuse of children in the context of UN peacekeeping missions.

The seminars included high-level military, naval, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Defence and civil society representation and aimed to share good practice on how to streamline and implement International Child Safeguarding Standards. The events were focused on ensuring that the key issues were addressed in a constructive manner, improving awareness and capacity and developing synergies between the participating organisations.
