For the occasion, they have invited sixteen young professionals and civil society leaders, all UNAOC Fellows, from Europe, North America, the Middle East, and North Africa, to share their recommendations on the meaningful inclusion of women in mediation efforts and in the prevention of conflict and violent extremism.
