This blog presents key findings from a FORUM in International Peacekeeping on how peacekeeping prevention of Conflict Related Sexual Violence can be strengthened. With a new administration in the United States, hopes abound for renewed commitment to multilateralism, not least in the United Nations Security Council. A more engaged US coupled with the United Kingdom’s presidency of the Council in February is an important opportunity to awaken a sense that the UN is seized with preventing sexual violence and ready to consolidate progress.
