Youth, Violent Conflict and Sustaining Peace: Quantitative Evidence and Future Directions


On 9 December 2015, the United Nations Security Council unanimously adopted Resolution 2250 on Youth, Peace and Security (YPS). As an important input to the upcoming Progress Study mandated by this groundbreaking Resolution, a quantitative research piece on Youth, Violence and Peacebuilding, was commissioned by UNDP Youth Global Programme, Youth-GPS in 2017, with generous support from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark, and in collaboration with the Peacebuilding Support Office (PBSO).

The empirical analysis, conducted in four country case studies – Afghanistan, Colombia, Mexico and Nepal – will be presented and discussed at a High-Level Side Event of the ECOSOC Youth Forum on 31 January 2018, co-hosted by Denmark and UNDP.
