USIP is teaming up with International Crisis Group to present a unique look at the role of young people in building and sustaining peace. We often overlook the huge toll that war takes on the younger generation whose lives are profoundly affected by conflicts around the world. This program brings together educational experts with young adults who have lived through conflict and are working to prevent it.
