Organized By : International Coalition for the Responsibility to Protect
Children and youth are uniquely affected by conflict and atrocities. Although they are disproportionately targeted, it is important to view them as more than just victims. As we have seen across the world, young people can be powerful agents of change. Youth leaders have inspired intergenerational resistance and built global movements on issues of peace, justice, human rights and climate change, demanding their right to shape the world that they will soon inherit.
The UN Secretary-General’s 2022 report on R2P, entitled “Children, Youth and the Responsibility to Protect,” highlights the impact of atrocities on children and youth, as well as their role in atrocity prevention. During this event, held on the margins of the UN General Assembly plenary meeting on R2P, expert panelists will shed light on the unique risks faced by children and youth, as well as provide cross-regional insights on how youth can play a more prominent role in building societal resilience against cycles of atrocities.
The event will take place online, on Wednesday, 22 June 2022, at 9AM (EDT).
