Youth and Sustainable Peace

TRENDS Research & Advisory, together with Women in International Security (WIIS) are organising a global conference on “Youth and Sustainable Peace.” In furthering international peace and security the international community has recognized the importance of engaging youth. The UN Security Council has adopted two major resolutions calling on all states to increase the role youth play in peace-building, conflict resolution and conflict prevention. Furthermore, the UN Security Council calls for youth to be part of discussions and decisions impacting upon a range of security‑related areas. The event will feature youth participation across all the panels, with UAE youth representatives featuring prominently.
