Youth Participation to Sustain Peace during Electoral Processes

This report was drafted in the context of the Sustaining Peace during Electoral Processes project to summarize the findings of an inclusive research process aimed at better understanding the connection between youth participation, electoral processes and the prevention of violence. The purpose of this report is to lay out challenges and opportunities for electoral-related programming involving youth, with a specific focus on programmatic entry points for the promotion of youth participation to sustain peace during electoral processes. The findings have been informed by an extensive consultative process, including regionally focused and youth specific consultations and a youth survey with over 1000 responses, alongside a literature review to assess the current state of play in terms of policies and research that informs programming.
