Guidance note of UN Secretary-General: Reparations for conflict‐related sexual violence
The UN Secretary-General’s Guidance Note on Reparations for Conflict-Related Sexual Violence, launched jointly with the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), calls for “long-term, in-depth solutions” such as land and inheritance rights, and not just a once-off cash payment.
The Guidance Note aims to provide policy and operational guidance for United Nations engagement in the area of reparations for victims of conflict-related sexual violence. It is intended to complement other relevant UN tools and Guidance Notes.
