1 min read

Melissa Fleming, Under-Secretary-General for Global Communications, interviews Unaisi Vuniwaqa, Assistant Secretary-General for Safety and Security – Awake at Night: S5-E3.

“Sometimes it can be very overwhelming, you really feel for the people and the suffering that they’re going through.”

In this episode, we meet Unaisi Vuniwaqa, who has witnessed terrible suffering. As the Assistant Secretary-General for Safety and Security, she has worked as a UN peacekeeper in some of the world’s most dangerous places.

What does it take to stay calm in the crossfire?

Peacekeepers have one of the toughest roles in the United Nations. Serving in brutal conflicts, such as that in South Sudan, can mean drawing on all their reserves of courage and ingenuity.

Unaisi Vuniwaqa reflects on what it takes to keep a cool head while in mortal danger and on maintaining the safety of UN staff and peacekeepers around the world.
