This report, authored by Mridul Upadhyay, presents an in-depth analysis of diverse initiatives led around the globe to foster the meaningful engagement of youth in peacebuilding processes or advance the Youth, Peace and Security Agenda. Through a meticulous mapping process, the study uncovers the wide array of strategies employed by both youth-led and non-youth-led organizations, and identifies thematic and programmatic trends. While this analysis was originally envisioned to contribute to the United States Institute of Peace’s (USIP) strategic promotion of the Youth Peace and Security (YPS) agenda worldwide, it also offers valuable insights for other global entities for future youth engagement in peacebuilding.
