Youth perspectives on peace and security: the Georgian-Abkhaz context

Apr 2018
In June and July 2017 Conciliation Resources’ local partners carried out two sets of surveys to capture the voices of youth in the context of unresolved conflict in the Georgian-Abkhaz context. Young people, reflecting some of the diversity of Georgian and Abkhaz societies, took part in focus group discussions (FGDs) and in-depth interviews. Participants discussed challenges to their peace and security, including but far from limited to the enduring impact of the Georgian-Abkhaz conflict on their lives. They also discussed the barriers to engagement in peacebuilding and dialogue that they face and their ideas for overcoming these barriers.

Youth aspirations for peace and security

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.

Paths to peace?

In 2013, qualitative research was conducted on both sides of the Georgian-Abkhaz conflict into attitudes towards a range of potential steps that could contribute to transforming the Georgian-Abkhaz conflict. What do people really think, what hopes and fears do they have, and to what extent are predominant attitudes presenting an obstacle to moving forward? The first PDF contains the Georgian findings, the second PDF contains the Abkhaz findings.
