Investigators' Manual - Investigation of Sexual Harassment Complaints

The Task Force's sub-group on investigations, under the lead of OIOS and with the input of a wide range of actors, has developed a Manual for investigations of sexual harassment, which will lay the foundation for consistent, effective and efficient investigations. This tool, approved by the High-level Committee on Management in March 2021, is also the fruit of the effort of the Task Force to put victims/survivors at the center of efforts to address sexual harassment in the UN system. The Manual is looking to reduce the burden for victims/survivors, for which the investigation process can be difficult. It is also intended to be a living document, taking into account emerging evidence and is at the disposal of the UN system's diverse partners in the spirit of knowledge sharing.
