Progress Study | Focus Group Discussions


Focus Group Discussions (FGDs)

In addition to the regional, national, and online consultations, the Progress Study drew from the findings of a series of focus group discussions (FGDs) undertaken by partner organizations in a wide range of countries. These focus group discussions often involved "hard to reach" or marginalized youth, whose voices are often not heard in discussions around policy. The objective of these FGDs was to document young people’s experiences and contributions to peace and security, as well as to provide a platform for them to share their concerns, recommendations and solutions for the youth, peace and security agenda.

For detailed reports on the findings of these focus groups discussions, see below. The views and opinions expressed in these reports are those of the authors / organizations and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of any entity of the United Nations.
