Focus Group Discussion Report | Youth Aspirations for Peace and Security
By Conciliation Resources
Conciliation Resources was invited by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) to contribute to the Progress Study on UNSCR 2250. 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.
This research was funded by SIDA to feed into the independent Progress Study on Youth, Peace and Security commissioned by Security Council Resolution 2250 and supported by UNFPA and the United Nations Peacebuilding Support Office (PBSO). Research in the Georgian-Abkhaz context was additionally supported by the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs and the UK Government’s Conflict, Stability and Security Fund; and research in Jammu and Kashmir was additionally supported by the Allan & Nesta Ferguson Charitable Trust.
