UNDP Global Meeting on PVE: The Role of Youth

The UNDP Global Meeting on Preventing Violent Extremism & Promoting Inclusive Development, Tolerance & Diversity, 14-16 March 2016 in Oslo, Norway.

Session 3 - Understanding and Supporting the Role of Youth in the Prevention of Violent Extremism:
This session place young people at the centre of the discussion, focusing on understanding the positive contribution of young women and men in preventing violent extremism in different contexts. We explore the linkages between youth radicalization and political violence, discuss evidence and data, and hear about the impressive work young champions are already leading in Somalia, Cameroon and Pakistan. We also discuss how the international community could effectively recognize, support and promote youth-led efforts and support the implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 2250.
