Do the United Nations cover up the truth?

For more than 70 years the UN has been at the forefront of work to uphold human rights and promote global peace, but how does it deal with allegations of widespread wrongdoing made against the organization itself?

The Whistleblowers: Inside the UN tells the story of the consequences insiders face when they speak out to allege a wide range of sexual abuse and corruption throughout the organization. Their first-hand accounts point to a culture of retaliation, untouchability and silence, which goes all the way to the top.
