UNICEF and Interpeace have the pleasure of inviting you to a panel discussion on 9 March, at the Palais des Nations on the margins of the 34th session of the Human Rights Council.

Ideology and the lack of employment opportunities for young people have long been portrayed as the primary root causes for youth violence. However, Interpeace’s research in Côte d’Ivoire and Mali, with the support of UNICEF, shows that these are only secondary factors and that youth’s violent acts are an expression of their need to find a place in society, to be recognized and valued.

The speakers will explore the origins of youth participation in new forms of violence and address the need for efforts to prevent youth violence in order to preserve the dignity of youth, in line with the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

If  you would like to attend the event, please RSVP here: genevaliaisonoffice@unicef.org

All attendees without a UN ground badge are kindly requested to register at genevaliaisonoffice@unicef.org by 7 March 2017.
