LISTENING AND LEARNING - A TWO WAY STREET

Civil Society
Date: Wednesday, 23 May 2018 09:30 - 12:30

City: Brussels, Belgium

Introduction

This event will explore youth-driven analysis of shared challenges and opportunities faced by people in the Euro-Mediterranean region, and discuss action-oriented proposals to develop more positive policy narratives.

Across the European and MENA regions, there is a growing trust gap between young people and their governments, multilateral organisations and even international civil society. Reactionary political and media discourse on global terrorism in recent years, all-too-often characterising youth as “at risk” of violent extremism, has led to alienation of youth from multilateral discussions rather than empowering them as essential partners for dialogue and peace-building.

This has consequences for the business and social environment in both regions, and is a challenge that must be embraced, according to the first-ever United Nations report on the topic: “The Missing Peace: Progress Study on Youth, Peace and Security.”

Key questions on how to change the narrative include:

  • How to prioritise regional partnerships and collaborative action where youth are viewed as equal and essential partners for dialogue and peace?
  • Are there emerging alternative ways of meaningful inclusion, or new players and opportunities that are being overlooked?
  • How can converging values and interests among a millennial generation, south and north of the Mediterranean, provide new models of regional governance?
  • How do governance processes benefit from the innovation, leadership and transnational connectivity of young people in the Euro-Mediterranean region?
  • Will women be the game-changers?
