This report summarises an academic thesis on sexual harassment, abuse and exploitation in the aid sector. The researcher found that gender-based violence, perpetrated by humanitarian actors, is condoned, covered-up, and replicated throughout the entire aid sector. The report attempts to make sense of the abuse of power and privilege which has become a daily reality for women working in the sector, and for the women and girls it serves.
