Strengthening global peace, security and governance

In this webinar, Commonwealth Alumnus Terri-Ann Gilbert-Roberts will discuss her work in recognising youth peace and security as an important global agenda for governance. The webinar will provide an insight on her work on ‘The Missing Peace’, an independent Progress Study which was submitted to the UN Security Council in 2018, the implications of the global agenda on Youth Peace and Security, and will highlight some important issues to be considered going forward.

The webinar will last for approximately 1 hour, including a Q&A session.


The CSC’s Knowledge Hub webinar series is open to Hub members. Through the series, Commonwealth Scholars and Alumni will discuss their work and contribution to development across a range of contemporary global challenges, and provide insight into ongoing research and action.
