Perspectives on Youth Peacebuilding in Afghanistan

Cecilia Polizzi

/ Analysis

Afghanistan has one of the highest proportions of young people in the world. The median age of the population is 15.7 years old, with 70% under 25 years of age. However, youth inclusion in peace processes in past years has been marginal, and young leaders´ voices are rarely heard. In this Q&A, CRTG Working Group President/CEO Cecilia Polizzi and USIP Generation Change Fellow Abdul Amal Basit discuss existing challenges and explore pathways to meaningful youth participation.
