With the aim to identify challenges that restrain youth engagement in peace processes and strategies to overcome these obstacles, the Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation is exploring experiences of youth in peacebuilding in Myanmar, Liberia and Tunisia. The work builds on the Foundation’s Development Dialogue no. 63 on Inclusive Peacebuilding: Recognised but not Realised, which identifies young people as a key stakeholder group in the process of building sustainable peace. This paper presents some preliminary findings from the Tunisia case study and from a consultation workshop on this theme organised by the Foundation in May 2016 in Uppsala, Sweden, with youth from a variety of backgrounds.
