UNSCR 2250: Moving Beyond Recognition
Today’s generation of youth is the largest the world has ever known and constitutes the majority of the population in countries affected by armed conflict. Young people's lack of access to opportunities for education, economic empowerment and political participation dramatically impacts on durable peace and reconciliation, and risks undermining the positive contribution youth can make to peace and security. So, what are we doing about it? What does it mean to be a young man or woman in 2017? What do growing inequality and economic stagflation mean for countries with high youth populations? How can we overcome the negative perceptions of youth populations, and the political exclusion youth experience? And how can we leverage the impending findings of the progress study on UNSCR 2250?
