UN System-wide Knowledge Hub on Addressing Sexual Harassment in the UN System

©United Nations
"I reaffirm my total commitment to the UN's zero tolerance policy on sexual harassment. In this effort and beyond, my message is simple: we will not tolerate sexual harassment anytime, anywhere. And we will continue to change the dynamic and put greater power into the hands of women to prevent and end sexual harassment and all abuse of power in the UN."


- Mr. António Guterres, UN Secretary-General



The UN System-wide Knowledge Hub on Addressing Sexual Harassment is a repository of resources, best practices and tools on the UN system's efforts to prevent and address sexual harassment.

The Knowledge Hub is part of the efforts of the CEB Task Force on Addressing Sexual Harassment to enhance coordination across the UN system. It brings together resources from across the UN family on addressing sexual harassment, to enhance transparency and facilitate easier access to key documents for internal and external audiences. It is available to all UN personnel, Member States and civil society.


ClearCheck Database – Data and Statistics 

The ClearCheck Screening Database is a critical system-wide tool to avoid the hiring and re-hiring of individuals whose working relationship with an Organization of the UN system ended because of a determination that they perpetrated sexual harassment or sexual exploitation and abuse. The Database also allows for the inclusion of individuals with pending allegations who leave the Organization before the completion of the investigation and/or disciplinary process.
