IMCS Pax Romana Call for Submission of Articles

Youth in Peace, Security and Conflict Resolution

Here is a great opportunity for all aspiring young writers and communicators.

The International Movement of Catholic Student celebrating the 2017 United Nations International Youth Day, is glad to open this call for article submission to hear from young people around the world, on the theme of peace, security and conflict resolution.

The United Nations Security Council adopted unanimously, on 9 December 2015, a ground-breaking resolution on Youth, Peace and Security which recognizes that “young people play an important and positive role in the maintenance and promotion of international peace and security”. UNSCR 2250 (2015) identifies five key pillars for action: participation, protection, prevention, partnerships and disengagement and reintegration. This landmark resolution urges Member States to give youth a greater voice in decision-making at the local, national, regional and international levels and to consider setting up mechanisms that would enable young people to participate meaningfully in peace processes.
