Download AudioWhat happens when the world’s protectors become the predators? When those who are meant to uphold human rights become the sexual abusers and rapists? For more than 20 years, United Nations Peacekeepers have allegedly been getting away with committing horrific crimes against the very people they’re supposed to protect. These crimes include indiscriminate killings, sex trafficking and sexual violence against women and children as young as seven. May 29 is the International Day of United Nations Peacekeepers and while the day will focus on celebrating UN troops, human rights campaigners want the spotlight shone on their victims, and they’re demanding measures to prevent further atrocities.Note: Lisa Sharland’s comments are in a private capacity, not reflecting her current role at the Australia Strategic Policy Institute.
