Upcoming USIP Events

Wednesday, May 4, 2016 - 9:00am

The world’s most violent 21st-century conflicts are centered among countries with the highest proportions of youth. A staggering 230 million children live in lands that have become battlefields, and extremist groups exploit their traumas to recruit youth to violence. Yet from these same embattled lands, young leaders emerge, working to heal divisions in their communities and build peace. They often face large social or political forces of violent conflict, and even threats of suppression or violence by combatants. As they do, how can others help them sustain the personal resilience on which their work depends? On May 4, join a global discussion online.

Wednesday, May 4, 2016 - 10:00am

Syria’s civil war has left more than 13 million people in desperate need of humanitarian assistance, but aid organizations face threats of attack, destroyed roads and other barriers in accessing besieged areas. Please join USIP and the Norwegian Refugee Council May 4 for a discussion with Jan Egeland, the former U.N. undersecretary general, who is helping lead international efforts to improve humanitarian access in Syria. As senior advisor to U.N. Special Envoy Staffan de Mistura, Egeland brings critical insights on Syria’s civil war.

This event has been cancelled. We apologize for any inconvenience.

The longstanding United Nations call for countries to adopt National Action Plans to involve women in issues of national security repeatedly stumbles in much of the Middle East and North Africa. Join the U.S. Institute of Peace on May 4 for a discussion on how these roadblocks can be overcome, especially amid the current upheaval.
