In September 2012, the United Nations reaffirmed, along with world leaders and civil society representatives, that "the rule of law applie[s] equally to all States and international organizations, including the United Nations. Given this position, what is the responsibility of the UN toward human rights organizations that demand compensation for victims of the ongoing cholera epidemic in Haiti, allegedly brought to the island by its own peacekeepers? What is the appropriate institutional response when UN peacekeepers and other staff are charged with acts of wrongdoing in conflict zones, including sexual violence and arms trafficking?

Featuring members of the International Advisory Board of the International Center for Ethics, Justice and Public Life:
Hans Corell, former Under-Secretary-General for Legal Affairs and Legal Counsel of the United Nations, Sweden
Richard Goldstone, retired Justice of the Constitutional Court, South Africa
Ahmedou Ould-Abdallah, President of the Center for Strategies and Security for the Sahel Sahara, Mauritania
