Conversations with African Union Youth Ambassadors for Peace

In this ninth episode of Coffee with ACCORD, we speak with the current African Youth Ambassador for Peace for the North Africa Region, Khouloud Ben Mansour.

This episode is hosted in partnership with the Youth for Peace Africa Program (Y4P), as a prelude to an Inter-Generational Dialogue Series we are co-convening that will examine the key cross-cutting issues identified by the Continental Framework for Youth, Peace and Security (CFYPS) as having an impact on the effective involvement of youth in peace and security in Africa, namely; capacity building, inclusivity, gender mainstreaming, communication and knowledge management. This Coffee with ACCORD episode aims to begin building understanding of these cross-cutting issues and how they impact the YPS agenda. This episode is inspired by the work ACCORD and Y4P, and all the other local, national, regional and continental actors, are doing towards strengthening the youth, peace and security agenda on the continent.

This episode was hosted by Savannah Wilmot and produced by Keenan Govender, Paidamwoyo Mudzimuirema, Lwandile Moyo, Katharine Bebington, and Thokozile Nkgadima. Vocals are by Rumbidzaishe Matambo and Wandile Langa.
