dc.description.abstractBy its resolution 2154 (2014), the Security Council noted ‘with deep appreciation how Captain Mbaye Diagne of UNAMIR1 and of Senegal saved, unarmed and in the face of extreme danger, hundreds of, or perhaps even a thousand, of Rwandans from death during the 1994 Genocide’. In light of the many other acts of bravery that United Nations personnel and associated personnel have undertaken while fulfilling their mandates, at great risk to their lives, the Security Council decided to create ‘The Captain Mbaye Diagne Medal for Exceptional Courage’. The purpose of these Guidelines is to set out detailed procedures to be followed when awarding the Captain Mbaye Diagne Medal for Exceptional Courage.en
