Youth, Security and Peace

On 9 December 2015, the UN Security Council adopted resolution 2250 (2015) on youth, peace and security, which for the first time, focuses on the role of young men and women in peacebuilding and countering violent extremism. 

The historic resolution urges Member States to consider ways to increase inclusive representation of youth in decision-making at all levels. It calls for “establishing integrated mechanisms”  for meaningful participation of young people in formal peace processes and peacebuilding efforts, recognizing the marginalisation of youth is detrimental to building sustainable peace.

Path to Resolution

In April 2015, Jordan assumed the presidency of the Security Council and placed on the Council’s work programme an open debate focusing on “the role of youth in countering violent extremism and promoting peace”. The ministerial-level debate, chaired by Jordan’s Prince Hussein bin Abdullah, was held on 23 April. This was the first ever formal debate on the topic.

  • Concept paper for the Security Council briefing on the theme “The role of youth in countering violent extremism and promoting peace” -  S/2015/231
  • Meeting Records - S/PV.7432
  • Meeting Coverage - SC/11872 

Global Forum on Youth, Peace and Security, growing out of the thematic debate in the Security Council, was held the 21st and 22nd of August 2015. It was the first gathering of its kind, where young people, youth-led organizations, non-governmental organizations, governments and UN entities came together to agree on a common vision and roadmap to partner with young people in preventing conflict, countering violent extremism and building lasting peace.
