Do You Hear the Youth Sing?

Cihan Dizdaroglu

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Across the world, youth have faced marginalization or exclusion by adults, causing young people to frequently feel devalued or ignored. There is a constant hesitancy to include the wider public—including youth and women—in peace processes. The Cypriot youth have also endured, and they continue to face challenges in voicing their opinions during decision-making and peacebuilding processes. This article focuses on UNSC’s landmark Resolution 2250 (2015) on Youth, Peace and Security in promoting and maintaining international peace and
security with the participation of the world’s youth while providing specific examples from the case of the Cypriot youth.
