Welcome to the fifth in a series of Youth4Peace E-consultations, which aim to gather inputs by young people and other stakeholders on a broad range of topics connected to the role of young people in sustaining peace, and the UN Security Council Resolution 2250 on youth, peace and security.

From 30 June to 20 July 2017, we will be focusing on gendered dynamics of youth peacebuilding

How to Take Part

We invite your inputs on one or more of the questions below, and encourage you to offer concrete examples, lessons learned and recommendations for policy and programmes. It is particularly valuable for the community if you would suggest links or references to evaluations, reports, assessments, academic studies, or lessons learned publications so that we can grow our evidence base of what has worked and what has not.

To contribute - and/or read comments - to the e-Consultation please sign in. If you are not a member, you can sign-up here. Once you have signed in, you will be able to post your comments at the bottom of this page.

If you would prefer to keep your responses confidential, you can use a nickname when creating your profile, but we would be grateful if you can include your age in your response for statistical purposes and analysis.

Contributions to all E-Consultation topics will feed into a Consolidated Reply that will expand the knowledge base available on the role of young people in sustaining peace and support the development of the Progress Study on Youth, Peace & Security mandated by UNSCR 2250.

Topic 5: Gendered dynamics of youth peacebuilding
  1. Is it important that gender is addressed in youth peacebuilding? Why?

  2. Does gender play a role in your peacebuilding work? If yes, how? If not, why?

  3. Is participating in peacebuilding efforts different for men and for women? If so, in what way(s)?

  4. How can youth movements and women’s movements best work collaboratively to sustain peace?
