“The United Nations is fully committed to fight this scourge, particularly through the UN Action Against Sexual Violence in Conflict, or “UN Action”, a network of 21 UN entities bringing together the collective experience and institutional capacity of the whole UN system.
As Secretary-General Guterres said, “Let’s resolve to uphold the rights and meet the needs of all survivors, as we work to prevent and end these horrific crimes”.
Together with the International Committee of the Red Cross, UN Geneva is proud to commemorate the International Day for the Elimination of Sexual Violence in Conflict with the installation of Franziska Greber’s UPROOTED and APART exhibition in the Palais des Nations to help bring crimes of sexual violence in conflict out of the shadows.”
