Ogaden Youth and Student Union (OYSU) UK organised a one day event with Conciliation Resources focusing on the role and contributing of youth to peace and development in the Ogaden-Somali region during this transitional period. OYSU members from the UK, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Sweden took part in this timely event where members formulated a set of plans and initiatives that OYSU will fulfil as part of the larger ongoing peacebuilding and development initiatives in the region. This process was in part informed by a conversation that the youth had with Jabarti Bainah via call conference, where he shared his perspectives and observations on the most critical needs of the Somali people in the Ogaden during this time.

Moreover, we were joined by Abdirahman Sh. Mahdi – Secretary General of Ogaden National Liberation Front (ONLF) for an interactive session on the perspective of youth on the recent peace deal, and their role in its implementation- including possible challenges.
