Youth Aspirations for Peace and Security
Between July and September 2017, Conciliation Resources conducted participatory research with 494 young people living in Afghanistan, Jammu and Kashmir, South Sudan, the Georgian-Abkhaz context, and among youth of the Ogaden diaspora living in the United Kingdom, with the aim of contributing to the Progress Study on UNSCR 2250. In identifying input, Conciliation Resources selected regions that had significant experience of violent conflict, but where the perspectives of those affected are not often heard. The consultations showed the great power of youth to act for peace and development, as well as their vision and ideas to achieve this.
