“We have been working to establish a crisis line for reporting sexual gender based
(SGB) being simply because of the issue of reporting is not always easy because of
stigma, providing opportunity for a person or a lady to call and say this is what has
happened to me anonymously. This is a mechanism that enables individual Somalis
to make complaints in a confidential manner.”

“At the heart of human rights due diligence policy is the concept of enabling the
United Nations to support these Forces in compliance and consistent with the highest

values of human rights and behaviour. So it’s there to enable us to do it, it is not there
to stop us from doing it, how does it enable, it is there as a tool to help to improve
behaviour and practices so that by having the human rights due diligence policy that
governs our support, we can only give that support in cases where there are
sufficient instruments and mechanisms in place to mitigate the risks of human rights
violations.”

“Capacity needs to be improved, educating women should be improved, empowering
when it comes to Womens’ involvement in all sectors of government should be
increased, the national gender policy, that should also be a priority because that will
increase the view, or it empowers as a whole to fight against this type of violence.”
