Sexual misconduct by military peacekeepers and abuses perpetrated by civilian peacekeepers and non-UN civilian interveners is a serious problem to local peoples and humanitarian efforts. It affects the capacity of the international community to achieve its goals related to stability and peacebuilding, and its legitimacy in the eyes of local and global populations.

In her new book Violating Peace: Sex, Aid and Peacekeeping, Dr Jasmine-Kim Westendorf draws on extensive field research in Bosnia, Timor-Leste, and with the UN and humanitarian communities, to investigate the impact of these behaviours.

This panel will discuss the implications of the findings in relation to Asia.

Panel:
Dr Jasmine-Kim Westendorf, Senior Lecturer in International Relations, La Trobe University
Dr Helen Durham, Director of International Law and Policy, International Committee of the Red Cross
Professor Susan Harris Rimmer, Director, Policy Innovation Hub, Griffith University

Chair:
Dr Bec Strating, Executive Director, La Trobe Asia
