Join us for a conversation between Gabrielle Simm and Louise Chappell on Gabrielle’s new book, Sex in Peace Operations. In this innovative study, Gabrielle offers a critical re-evaluation of sex between international personnel and local people and examines the zero tolerance policy on sexual exploitation and abuse and its international legal framework. Whereas most preceding studies of the issue have focused exclusively on military peacekeepers, Sex in Peace Operations also covers the private military contractors and humanitarian NGO workers who play increasingly important roles in peace operations. 

This event is co-hosted by the AHRCentre and the Centre for Gender Related Violence Studies Network (CGRVS).
