Unied Nations Peacekeeping Engagement with Youth: MONUSCO Case Study

Published on


n December 2015, the Security Council adopted resolution 2250 (2015), which is considered a landmark resolution on youth, peace and security because of it recognition that youth can be positive change agents in peacebuilding processes. SCR 2250 (2015) encourages youth participation in peace processes and calls on Member States and the UN to protect young men and women during and after armed conflicts. Although the resolution does not explicitly refer to peacekeeping operations, the prominent role played by peacekeeping operations in conflict situations, makes SCR 2250 (2015) particularly relevant to peacekeeping missions.
