Join USIP and its partners on July 26 to review this research and discuss how these distinct paths for seeking sustainable peace can be better combined.
Most of the world’s most violent conflicts occur in countries with burgeoning populations of young people. Often these youth are the most vulnerable to the ravages of war. At the same time, more than 80 percent of people globally identify as religious, and their leaders and representatives often work on the front lines to prevent and reduce violent conflict. Yet both groups too often are excluded from formal peace efforts. Join the authors of a new U.S. Institute of Peace Special Report for an Aug. 1 webcast conversation on how these two groups are working together and ways they can contribute even more to the cause of peace.
