Within the framework of the International Day of United Nations Peacekeepers, De Montfort University, a UNAI member institution in the United Kingdom serving as our Hub for Goal 16: Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions, is organizing an event entitled The road to a lasting peace: Leveraging the power of youth for peace and security, with talks from leading experts from around the world. 

This year the challenges and threats faced by UN Peacekeepers are even greater than ever. Like people around the world, they are having to cope not only with the COVID-19 pandemic but also the continued requirement to support and protect others in the countries in which they are based.

The event will take place on Friday, 28 May 2021 from 12:30pm to 1:45pm (UK time).
