About
Unmasking the United Nation’s Culture of Cover-ups, Corruption and Impunity. By Rasna Warah.

In a world experiencing increasing conflicts, terrorism and displacement, many people are wondering what the United Nations – the organisation established in 1945 to save future generations from the scourge of war – should do or could have done to prevent the disasters from escalating.

UNsilenced shows that contrary to expectation, the UN has remained a bystander in many of the conflicts and most peace-building efforts have failed miserably. UNsilenced describes how whistleblowers have been denied justice within the UN system and how the immunity accorded to UN officials, combined with other malpractices within the organisation, allows injustice to flourish.

The book will be discussed by John Githongo, Billy Kahora, Kwamchetsi Makokha and the author Rasna Warah.
