Angelina Jolie Speaks at UN Peacekeeping Defense Ministerial in London

Actress, director, and UN Special Envoy Angelina Jolie arrives for her speech at the UN Peacekeeping Defense Ministerial on Thursday (September 8) in London, England.

Angelina was seen stopping to speak with US Defense Secretary Ash Carter while making her way inside.

“We all know that the credibility of UN peacekeeping has been sadly undermined by the actions of a few intolerable cases of women and children being sexually exploited by the very people in charge of protecting them,” Angelina said (via The Telegraph) in her speech. “Peacekeeping forces can only gain and keep the trust of local populations if they are able to engage with women as well as men in that community.”

    Angelina Jolie says UN undermined by sexual abuse by peacekeepers

    Special envoy calls for prosecution of peacekeepers who commit abuses and calls for more women to participate in missions

    Angelina Jolie has made a surprise appearance at a major UN peacekeeping summit, where she told delegates from 80 countries that the organisation’s reputation had been undermined by intolerable cases of sexual abuse by peacekeepers.

    The UN special envoy and actor described being moved by the desire for justice and accountability of refugee women she had met who had been abused by international troops. Jolie said on Thursday: “We all know that the credibility of UN peacekeeping has been sadly undermined by the actions of a few intolerable cases of women and children being sexually exploited by the very people in charge of protecting them.”

    Calling for the prosecution of peacekeepers who commit abuses, she said a new approach to peacekeeping was needed that had the “rights and protection and involvement of women at its heart”. She also called for more women to participate in missions. “Peacekeeping forces can only gain and keep the trust of local populations if they are able to engage with women as well as men in that community,” she said.

    Sexual abuse and exploitation by peacekeepers, and the participation of women in missions, were among the key themes of the summit, following allegations of sexual assault in countries including Haiti and Central African Republic.

    The defence minister, Michael Fallon, called for a “zero-tolerance approach” to the issue. There had been some “some shocking examples of poor performance that we can all deplore”, he said, which risked losing the “hearts and minds” of the people that missions aimed to protect.

    Officials said the UN is taking sexual violence and other breaches of discipline increasingly seriously, and had set up a separate unit to investigate allegations that was separate from personnel on the ground. Where anyone misbehaves, the whole contingent will be sent home, and in some cases individuals have been prosecuted in their home countries.

    But campaigners said this was just smoke and mirrors. “The problem is that the UN has a conflict of interest: it’s allowed to police itself, and it’s allowed to act as judge and jury,” said Paula Donovan, co-director of Aids-Free World, an NGO that runs a campaign, Code Blue, on sexual abuse in the UN.

    Code Blue has called for independent organisations to be set up to receive, investigate and prosecute allegations of abuse by peacekeepers. Officials said this would be more cumbersome to implement than a UN-based team that already had the diplomatic status allowing it to act quickly.

    The summit, which UN undersecretary general, Hervé Ladsous, described as the largest gathering in the history of peacekeeping, follows an event last year at which 50 nations pledged to increase their contribution to UN missions to deal with increasingly challenging and diverse threats. Barack Obama called on peacekeepers to play a more aggressive role, particularly on tackling Islamist insurgent forces in countries such as Somalia and Mali.

    Delegates pledged more than 40,000 personnel – including soldiers and police officers – last year, on top of the 125,000 peacekeepers already operating around the world. Fallon said the aim was now to “turn pledges from paper into soldiers”.

    The UN is also aiming to increase the speed with which it can react to crises as they emerge, Ladsous said. Currently it takes about six months to set up a peacekeeping mission, but pledges from last year’s event and Thursday’s summit mean the UN now aims to have a stock of pre-approved personnel so that it can deploy a “substantial brigade” within 60 days.

    Britain has about 270 troops in a decades-long peacekeeping operation in Cyprus, and is now shifting its attention to Africa. Fallon announced on Thursday morning a planned deployment to South Sudan next year would now number 400 – up from 300 – along with about 40 personnel in Somalia. There are about 25 women involved in UK peacekeeping operations. Challenged on the comparatively small number of people the UK contributed, Fallon pointed out Britain was the sixth-largest financial contributor.

    Angelina Jolie Perfects the Art of Power Dressing in a Sheer Black Dress for Her UN Speech

    As we begin the sartorially tricky transition from summer into fall, let Angelina Jolie guide you with this effortlessly chic LBD. The mom-of-six and tireless peace activist attended a UN conference in London on Thursday in the perfect power dress.

    Jolie stunned in the knee-length frock, which featured a sheer neckline and sleeves and a peplum waist. The star kept her accessories simple, adding just diamond studs and nude stilettos, and pulling her long brown hair back into a coiffed bun.

    The United Nations Special Envoy was a guest at the UN Peacekeeping Defense Ministerial, where she took the stage to discuss the importance of appointing female peacekeepers to prevent sexual violence throughout the globe. In her speech, she praised the servicemen working to make the world a safe place.
    “I pay tribute to the men and women who serve … for their commitment and their sacrifices,” she said in her address.

    More women needed as UN peacekeepers, urge defence chiefs and campaigner Angelina Jolie

    LONDON, Sept 8 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – More women must be included in United Nations peacekeeping missions to help restore credibility to troops marred by accusations of sexual violence and to protect women in conflict, speakers at a U.N. defence summit said on Thursday.

    Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie, an active campaigner to stop sexual violence in conflict, joined defence ministers and military chiefs from around 70 countries at the summit aiming to improve the performance of U.N. peacekeeping operations.

    UK Defence Minister Michael Fallon and other speakers called on U.N. member states to double the number of women peacekeepers by 2020 after UN Women data showed just four percent of peacekeepers in 16 missions globally were women.

    The U.N. is currently investigating accusations of sexual exploitation by foreign peacekeepers in Central African Republic and reports South Sudan peacekeepers failed to respond during an attack on foreign aid workers where women were raped and beaten.

    Fallon said they needed to “redouble efforts to enable women to participate in all aspects of peacekeeping”, saying women’s participation could help drive success.

    “If we are honest, there are far too few women in our peacekeeping missions when a gender mix can have a major impact on operational effectiveness,” Fallon told the one-day summit that followed a meeting in New York last year.

    JOLIE’S LEADING ROLE

    Boosting women’s involvement was a recurrent theme with a final communique urging U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to prioritise the appointment of women in senior peacekeeping roles and double the number of women peacekeepers by 2020.

    Jolie, a special envoy for the U.N. refugee agency (UNHCR), made a surprise appearance and speech at the summit, praising the work of service men and women around the world.

    The actress has played a leading role in combatting sexual violence in conflict since co-founding an initiative in 2012 with Britain’s former foreign secretary William Hague to rally global action on such crimes.

    UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said there was a need for “the indispensable skills women bring to resolving conflict”.

    All roles in the British Armed Forces have recently been opened up to women following a review of women in close combat.

    Fallon said sexual abuse and exploitation must be eliminated and the U.N. must adopt a “zero tolerance” policy towards it.

    He cited “shocking examples of poor performance” by peacekeepers, without giving details but saying that he was referring to cases of sexual abuse by peacekeepers.

    Women’s rights groups have long lobbied for more women to be involved in all aspects of peacekeeping, but numbers of female peacekeepers have been slow to increase.

    Matt Lauer Fields Storm of Criticism Over Clinton-Trump Forum
    By MICHAEL M. GRYNBAUMSEPT. 8, 2016

    It was a high-stakes political moment, far from the chummier confines of the “Today” show and, for Matt Lauer, NBC’s stalwart of the morning, a chance to prove his broadcasting mettle on the presidential stage.

    The consensus afterward was not kind.

    Charged with overseeing a live prime-time forum with Donald J. Trump and Hillary Clinton — widely seen as a dry run of sorts for the coming presidential debates — Mr. Lauer found himself besieged on Wednesday evening by critics of all political stripes, who accused the anchor of unfairness, sloppiness and even sexism in his handling of the event.

    Granted 30 minutes with each candidate, who appeared back-to-back at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in Manhattan, Mr. Lauer devoted about a third of his time with Mrs. Clinton to questions about her use of a private email server, then seemed to rush through subsequent queries about weighty topics like domestic terror attacks.

    When an Army veteran in the audience asked Mrs. Clinton to describe her plan to defeat the Islamic State, Mr. Lauer interjected before the candidate could begin her reply.

    “As briefly as you can,” he said, one of several moments where the anchor spoke over Mrs. Clinton to remind her that their time was running short.

    Mr. Trump stormed onstage in his familiar motor-mouth style, often talking over Mr. Lauer and declining to directly answer many of his questions. At times, Mr. Lauer — who has conducted fewer adversarial interviews with Mr. Trump than his colleagues on NBC’s political desk — appeared flummoxed by his subject’s linguistic feints.

    Drawing particular ire was the moment when Mr. Trump asserted, with his usual confidence: “I was totally against the war in Iraq.”

    In fact, Mr. Trump initially said he supported the war, a point that Mrs. Clinton had raised earlier in the evening, citing an interview that Mr. Trump had given to Howard Stern. But Mr. Lauer left the assertion unchallenged, zipping along to his next question about Mr. Trump’s professed tendency to “say things that you later regret.”

    Journalists and longtime political observers pounced. “How in the hell does Lauer not factcheck Trump lying about Iraq? This is embarrassingly bad,” wrote Tommy Vietor, a former aide to President Obama. Glenn Kessler, the chief fact checker at The Washington Post, posted a link to NBC’s check of Mr. Trump’s claim and wrote: “@MLauer should have been prepared to do this.”

    “Lauer interrupted Clinton’s answers repeatedly to move on. Not once for Trump,” Norman Ornstein, the political commentator, wrote in a Twitter message, adding: “Tough to be a woman running for president.”

    On social media, surrogates for Mrs. Clinton began mounting a sustained attack on the anchor. “Imagine if @NBCNews had done its job,” wrote Nick Merrill, her press secretary, on Twitter. Neera Tanden, a close Clinton ally, was even harsher: “I guess the good news is that Matt Lauer isn’t moderating an actual debate,” she wrote.

    The criticism captured what has become a common complaint about media coverage during this election: that news organizations and interviewers treat Mrs. Clinton as a serious candidate worthy of tough questions, while Mr. Trump is sometimes handled more benignly.

    Mr. Lauer did manage to extract several head-turning statements from Mr. Trump. He confronted Mr. Trump with a crass Twitter message from 2013 in which the future candidate suggested that sexual assaults in the military were a logical result of men and women serving together. “It is a correct tweet,” Mr. Trump said.

    When Mr. Lauer asked if Mr. Trump actually believed he knew more about the Islamic State than American generals, the candidate replied: “The generals have been reduced to rubble.” When Mr. Lauer brought up Mr. Trump’s admiration for President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia, noting that Mr. Putin had invaded Ukraine and was suspected of hacking Democratic emails, Mr. Trump refused to say a negative word about him. “Do you want me to start naming some of the things that President Obama does?” Mr. Trump asked.

    Still, with the formal debates set to begin on Sept. 26, Mr. Lauer’s performance seemed to preview the troubles that television moderators could face in balancing fairness with accountability. Mr. Trump, with his Houdini-like ability to squirm out of direct answers, is a particularly tough subject for interviewers, who will be forced to determine on the fly when to interrupt with a prime-time fact-check. Chris Wallace, the Fox News anchor who will handle the third presidential debate, drew criticism this week when he said, “I don’t view my role as truth-squading.”

    If Mr. Lauer — who was passed over to host a debate in favor of his NBC colleague Lester Holt — was seeking a piece of the moderator experience, he got it. Warts and all.

    Next time can we get a real moderator please?
