II) Enhance capacities of marginalised youth, particularly those more vulnerable to recruitment by armed groups or vulnerable to extremist ideologies, to engage in socio-political processes;
III) Fostering a culture of peace and respect for human rights and tolerance as a set of values conducive to peaceful societies;
IV) Empowering young women and enhancing their role and meaningful participation in conflict prevention and conflict transformation as agents of positive change at societal level.
This should be reflected in initiatives directly addressing young women meaningful participation in the entire project cycle and in initiatives supporting women-led organisations.
