Human Rights Watch on AMISOM Abuses

Human Rights Watch published in September 2014 a 71-page report titled "The Power These Men Have Over Us: Sexual Exploitation and Abuse by African Union Forces in Somalia."  Drawing on interviews with 21 women and girls, the report documents sexual exploitation and abuse of Somalis at two AMISOM bases in Mogadishu, where Ugandan and Burundian soldiers are present.  The report acknowledges that AMISOM has taken some measures to address sexual and gender-based violence.
