Prevalence of Sexual Exploitation and Abuse By Humanitarian and Security Actors in Africa

  • Gender Equality
  • Humanitarian Aid
  • International Institutions
  • Peace and Security
  • Peacekeeping and Peacebuilding

It is no longer news that sexual exploitation and abuse (SEA) is constantly perpetrated by humanitarian actors across Africa. While emphasis has been on humanitarian actors of international organizations, little attention has been paid to the acts of Sea perpetrated by local humanitarian actors and security personnel. This roundtable discusses the prevalence of Sea across board by bringing evidence to the fore on the most prevalent forms of SEA as well as the various perpetrators of Sea in humanitarian crises. While there have been standards laid down by the United Nations in preventing SEA, this roundtable proffers sustainable solutions to preventing all forms of SEA by adopting a community and collective-based approach. The roundtable shares experiences in the context of humanitarian crises in several parts of Africa and the need to localize the solutions based on laid down standards and principles.
