"Engaging Youth: Palestine refugees in a changing middle east" - high-level stakeholder gathering

unrwa-conf 9MarchThe United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) is proud to announce “Engaging Youth: Palestine refugees in a changing Middle East”, a high-level stakeholder gathering to be held at the Egmont Palace in Brussels on 19 and 20 March 2012 (by invitation only).

The conference will focus on youth, its untapped potential and aspirations. Palestine refugee youth are a significant constituency for change in the Middle East. Currently, UNRWA serves nearly 5 million Palestine refugees in the region, 50 per cent of whom are youth.

It is in the interest of the international community including states in the Middle East region to connect with youth and provide enabling environments to address their humanitarian and developmental needs. Events in 2011 have underlined the importance of youth in the region as well as the importance of ensuring their future.
