Youth, Peace and Security - Promoting the Role of Young Jordanians in Conflict Prevention, Counter Extremism and Peacebuilding

Youth, Peace and Security - Promoting the Role of Young Jordanians in Conflict Prevention, Counter Extremism and Peacebuilding

The project focuses on the landmark UN Security Council Resolution 2250 on Youth, Peace and Security. The resolution, sponsored by Jordan, was adopted in December 2015 and deals with the topic of peace and security from a youth perspective. It explores how conflict impacts young people’s lives and what must be done to mitigate its effects, as well as how youth can be meaningfully included in creating peaceful communities. The participation of youth in peace processes means that both young people and youth organisations should be consulted and involved in decision-making.

Identity Center will train and support local youth across Jordan to engage in awareness-raising on human security principles and the UNSC resolution 2250, and empower them to engage in multi-stakeholder dialogues and policy discussions on the role of people in conflict prevention, counter extremism and peacebuilding. The project is funded by the U.S.-Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI).
