Building the capacity of youth in Armenia to prevent mass atrocities

In August, UNA-Armenia (AUNA) recruited 15 youngsters from the Armenian UN Association Youth Division Network to participate in training on the Responsibility to Protect. Among the participants were future lawyers, political scientists, economists and diplomats interested and keen to learn more. AUNA’s Project Coordinator welcomed all the participants, encouraging them to take a leading role in promoting the R2P as future leaders of Armenia.

The training began by introducing WFUNA, AUNA and by explaining how youth could be involved in implementing R2P through WFUNA and AUNA's project “Responsibility to protect (R2P): Mobilizing Public and Political Will”. The head of AUNA Youth Division, who was trained by WFUNA, provided participants with an overview of R2P to gain a better understanding of its historical importance. The training, modeled to be interactive, included power point presentations on the norm as well as organized debates. The debate whereby groups argued for or against the norm was a particular favorite amongst the participants.

AUNA received an overwhelmingly positive response from the Youth Division with many participants requesting further discussion and debates on R2P and its surrounding issues in the future.
