Young Women in Peace and Security - At the intersection of the YPS and WPS agendas

2018. Author: UN Women

This paper addresses the gaps in both the “women, peace, and security” (WPS) and the “youth, peace, and security” (YPS) agendas when it comes to visibility, inclusion and participation of young women in all aspects of preventing and recovering from conflict and building peace, and offers concrete recommendations to governments, UN agencies, and civil society partners about how to ensure that young women’s voices and experiences are heard, and that young women themselves have opportunities to meaningfully contribute to building and sustaining peace
