It is excellent to note that your consultations have highlighted the urgent need to understand the motivations of young people in pre- and post-conflict situations. Indeed, if one looks at, for example, the Sierra Leone war, it is clear that a major factor was the widespread alienation of youth. Given the demographics, this is a critical dynamic. It is also important to look at youth as a resource for peacebuilding. I hope that you are aware of the "Youthzones" project and film... Keep up the good work. I very much look forward to reading the 2011 report. And I hope that it also has sufficient attention to women and girls. (I note one chapter/bkgd paper on gender....yet surely this is mainstreamed throughout, as well?) Thanks, Pam DeLargy, UNFPA
