Navigating inclusion in peace transitions

May 2018
Based on analysis of four contexts (Nepal, Nigeria, the Somali Region of Ethiopia (Ogaden) and Colombia) this report explores how inclusion is negotiated in peace processes and associated avenues for resolving conflict and effecting political change. While analysis of peacebuilding and peace processes often focuses on elite-led negotiations, this research examines how change is perceived by those living in conflict-affected contexts, and strategies used by different groups to influence political change.

Youth aspirations for peace and security

Jan 2018
Youth aspirations for peace and security
In December 2015, the United Nations Security Council adopted UNSCR 2250 on Youth, Peace and Security. The resolution was the first to recognise the important role young people can play in preventing conflicts, and sustaining peace. Conciliation Resources was invited by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) to contribute to the Progress Report on UNSCR 2250. Between July and September 2017, we conducted participatory research with 494 young people living in Afghanistan, Jammu and Kashmir, South Sudan, the Georgian-Abkhaz context, and among youth of the Ogaden diaspora living in the United Kingdom.

Five ways to support youth inclusion in peacebuilding

Young people who have experienced conflict firsthand have a vital role to play in peacebuilding. They have a clear vision of what peace could look like in their countries and communities, and have the drive to work towards the realisation of these goals. 
 
However, in many cases they are seen not as positive forces for peace, but rather as threats to it.

Film - From Garissa to Liberia: lessons for peacebuilding

In September, ten peacebuilders travelled from Kenya to West Africa to learn from each other’s challenges and successes, to help them build more peaceful and inclusive societies. In this film, they share what they learnt.
