Motion - Youth Advocacy for Peace: A Human Rights Lens on the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict


The European Youth Forum, the democratic platform of over 100 youth organisations, representing over 40 million young people across Europe, is strongly rooted in the values of human rights, intercultural understanding, peace and solidarity. As advocates for human rights and peace, we underscore the vital role of young people and youth organisations in conflict transformation, aligning our stance with the principles of the UN Security Council Resolution 2250 (2015) and 2419 (2018) on Youth, Peace and Security.

The conflict between Israel and Palestine has reached unprecedented levels since the Hamas attack on October 7, 2023.

In light of these events, the European Youth Forum is in need of expressing it's profound concern with the situation, especially regarding the human rights crisis experienced by so many young people.
