UNOY, “Mapping a sector: Bridging the evidence gap on youth-driven peacebuilding”, Report

Oslo Governance Centre • 2 May 2017

"Many young people are agents for peace, engaged in transforming the structures and institutions that hinder the socio- economic and political well-being of people living in fragile and conflict affected communities. In December 2015, the United Nations Security Council recognized these efforts with a unanimous vote on UN Security Council Resolution 2250 on Youth, Peace and Security (UNSCR 2250). UNSCR 2250 sets guidelines for its member states, the UN and civil society to ensure young people’s active, systematic and meaningful participation in institutions and mechanisms relating to peace and security."
