Conference: Youth for Peace and Security

Youth for Peace and Security

Young People’s Participation in Peacebuilding – an Underestimated Contribution on the Way to Sustainable Peace?

Our conference aims at discussing the emerging field of young people in peace and security which has only very rarely been systematically investigated and gather new insights on their role in sustainable peace. It sets out to critically analyse how young people contribute to peace and to include the role young people play in the study of peace and conflict. Further, we aim to investigate on the importance of the topic and its future in Peace and Conflict Studies research. It advances frameworks and outlooks on young people in peace through, comparative and case analysis and discussions that explore young peoples role in peace and security through approaches, both empirically and theoretically.
