A Lost Generation: Young People and Conflict in Africa

and international actors have failed to put these into effect with initiatives addressing the needs of young people. The problem is particularly marked in the case of young girls and child mothers, for whom very little support provision is made. Changing this situation would require a regrouping of legal prescriptions, policy frameworks and mission practices, bringing together issues of children, youth, ex- combatants, gender, protection and participation, into one overall framework. It would also require stronger coordination, monitoring and resourcing for initiatives in support of youth protection and participation. For example, the youth groups targeted by the ‘Restoring Peace Project’ benefited from training in research skills and were given opportunities to learn from each other and to engage in joint reflection and analysis. The inter-country project coordinated and supported the research initiative in Burundi and Uganda in which young people and adult duty bearers participated in collecting oral testimonies presented in this volume.
