United Nations published this video item, entitled “Strengthening the conduct of peacekeeping personnel: sharing good practices – UN Chief” – below is their description.
Video message by António Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations, on the occasion of the meeting of Member States on strengthening the conduct of peacekeeping personnel.
Successful peacekeeping requires the highest standards of conduct by our United Nations peacekeepers, both civilian and uniformed. We have steadily made progress on improving training and creating safe ways to report misconduct. We are working to increase transparency, strengthen internal accountability, and emphasize the needs and rights of victims and survivors.
Member States are our vital partners in all these efforts. I thank those that have concluded a Voluntary Compact, joined my Circle of Leadership, and contributed to the Trust Fund for the Victims of Sexual Exploitation and Abuse. I now ask all of you to go further.
This is key to improving our ability to prevent misconduct, enforce standards and remedy harm.
Together, we must continue to make progress on this collective priority by learning from the lessons of the past and building on them. We need to honour our values with bold action to ensure accountability for United Nations peacekeeping personnel who are guilty of misconduct. I look forward to engaging with you on measures you can take, and how we can support you.United Nations YouTube Channel
