Violent extremism is a growing threat to peace and security in Southern Africa. As national and regional decision makers grapple with how to respond, they should look to the potential of young people in the peacemaking process.

This seminar will debate key findings and recommendations from a new policy brief on how to harness the power of the youth in preventing violent extremism. These questions are especially significant for Africa’s Youth, Peace and Security agenda.
