Operationalizing the Stockholm Declaration: Translating commitments on Youth Peace and Security into IDPS work plan and action
The Global Meeting of the International Dialogue held in Stockholm on 5th April agreed on several key priorities for the IDPS to focus on over the next few years. In the declaration the International Dialogue commits to contributing to implementing the 2030 Agenda by using New Deal principles. It is stated that the New Deal is a key framework for achieving resilience and development results in fragile and conflict-affected environments and for meeting the commitment to ‘leaving no one behind’. It is also recognized that there can be no sustainable peace without the meaningful inclusion of civil society including youth led and youth focused organizations.
