UN: Impunity for All

Format
Video; Streaming Video; Online
Summary
It’s considered a temple of global diplomacy and the world’s largest humanitarian organization. But for decades, one scandal after another has battered the UN’s reputation. From the oil-for-food scandal in Iraq, to claims it was responsible for the cholera epidemic in Haiti and multiple accusations of waste, corruption and unaccountability at all levels, the UN’s credibility and integrity has been repeatedly undermined...In this film, we investigate some of the most serious accusations. We talk to former UN peacekeepers, who describe how they went sent on pointless missions, where they did nothing. Hear accounts of UN jobs for sale and millions of dollars in supplies stolen. And finally, we hear from those who have tried to investigate claims of corruption or secure justice for the victims. Why is it so hard to hold the UN to account?
