A Day to Galvanize Action On Conflict-Related Sexual Violence
By Stephenie Foster and Blake Peterson

Earlier this month the United Nations General Assembly declared June 19th the International Day for the Elimination of Sexual Violence in Conflict. This new international commemoration will provide the international community an additional platform on which to stand in solidarity with the survivors and pay tribute to those working to end sexual violence in conflict.

And it couldn’t come at a more critical time.  Sexual violence in conflict -- against women, girls, men and boys -- is a global scourge. Women and children are disproportionately affected by such violence and its use as a tactic of war often tears apart the social fabric that holds communities together.

We see this as in Syria, where the Syrian Armed Forces, intelligence services, and pro-government forces use sexual violence against people fleeing the conflict. Non-state actors also use conflict-related sexual violence not only to terrorize women and children, but to suppress opposition and punish people with different beliefs. 

Boko Haram’s gross violence against women and girls -- abduction and rape often exercised under the cover of false terms like “marriage,” or the use of girls as suicide bombers -- reflects its toxic ideology.

And in Iraq, ISIL uses sexual slavery to further devastate members of minority communities.

As the UN’s Special Representative to the Secretary-General for Sexual Violence in Conflict has noted repeatedly, sexual and gender-based violence has become an ingrained aspect of ISIL’s overall strategy to control territory, destroy the social fabric of communities, and recruit new fighters.

In the past few years, Special Representative Zainab Bangura has demonstrated global leadership and tackled this issue head-on.  Her efforts have resulted in significant changes in the way we approach conflict-related sexual violence.  She is charting new territory and testing new approaches for working with governments to cultivate the will necessary to stop sexual violence in its tracks -- and hold perpetrators accountable. 

Over the last two decades, the international community has increasingly galvanized around this issue, denouncing the culture of impunity surrounding sexual violence and supporting the establishment of transitional justice mechanisms, many of which have been a catalyst for judicial and legal reform, and for social policies that empower, rather than stigmatize, survivors.   In the past year alone we have seen concrete action, especially in countries deeply affected by the specter of conflict-related sexual violence.  For instance, the Presidents of Colombia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Kosovo all recently acknowledged that restoring the dignity of survivors must be at the heart of efforts to build, and sustain, peace.  Yet while we have seen progress, there is much more that remains to be done.

Preventing sexual violence is about our common humanity. The international community must continue our work to protect all people from the crimes of sexual violence and improve measures to protect those most at risk.  We must all stand united and take urgent action to combat this behavior.

The Obama Administration has made the protection and promotion of women’s rights fundamental to its foreign policy.  The United States will continue to use any platform -- from UN  international commemorations to other multilateral fora -- to draw much needed attention to and to encourage action. This day of commemoration is another way to do just this. We welcome it.

  Pump this one up:

“A September 11, 2012, email sent at 6:21 p.m. by State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland to Meehan [Bernadette Meehan, a spokesperson for the National Security Council], Under Secretary for Management Patrick F. Kennedy, and Clinton’s personal aide Jacob Sullivan shows that the State Department deferred to the White House on the official response to the Benghazi attack.  Referencing pending press statements by Barack Obama and Clinton, Nuland wrote: ‘We are holding for Rhodes [then-White House deputy strategic communications adviser] clearance. BMM [Meehan], pls advise asap.’

Can Sustainability Enhance Profitability?
By Lisa Kubiske and Michael Meehan

We’re almost down to just two weeks to go before heading to Addis Ababa for the UN’s Third Financing for Development Conference! Some things have changed since the first Financing for Development Conference in 2002. But the importance of a dynamic, inclusive, well-functioning private sector has not. 

Just ask the OECD. They calculated that foreign direct investment (FDI) is the biggest international capital inflow into developing countries by far -- $600 billion in 2012, making up 60 percent of all international capital flows to developing countries. It’s a lot of money, and it has an even bigger effect than you might think.  It builds businesses and creates jobs, but it also contributes to long-term stability of the country.

But what does FDI mean on the ground? In concrete terms? We decided to ask companies themselves. So, the U.S. State Department this week partnered with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) to convene a “Responsible and Transparent Business Leadership Roundtable” between U.S. government officials and a dozen officials from U.S. firms and other organizations, including Lockheed Martin, Microsoft, The Mosaic Company, NASDAQ, Staples, State Street, Symantec, and The Walt Disney Company.

We learned about companies investing in education and job training abroad, not only to make the world a better place, but also to create future customers and employees. We heard inspiring stories of companies embracing sustainability (such as Disney’s Supply Chain Investment Program or NASDAQ participation in the Sustainable Stock Exchanges Initiative) because it fits with their corporate ideals and is increasingly demanded by employees, investors, and customers. Many companies found that sustainability reporting like the GRI framework was somewhat of a challenge to initiate but ultimately found that it enhanced profitability (e.g., using less fuel means lower carbon emissions and lower costs).

The U.S. government encourages companies to achieve high standards of responsible business conduct -- and champions those that achieve such best practices by recognizing firms every year with the Secretary of State’s Award for Corporate Excellence. We want to continue to see U.S. companies represent something more than profit-making enterprises -- to remain innovative job creators that are committed to building employees’ skills and invested in and engaged with local communities. President Obama’s National Action Plan for Responsible Business Conduct provides the opportunity to continue this conversation, both by highlighting the best practices companies can offer and by making recommendations on how the U.S. government can better partner with companies to find solutions to some of the world’s most complex challenges. Finding ways to work with U.S. business to advance these goals can increase their ability to serve as reliable, sustainable, and accountable actors overseas that promote the kind of inclusive, climate-friendly, labor rights-respecting growth that we all want to see.

Our dialogue in this roundtable helped each side better understand each other and learn how we can support each other’s efforts. With 2015 being so critical for global development, perhaps there is no better year for this exchange.
