Our Vision

OGIP envisions a future where the voices and perspectives of young people, particularly young women, are centered in peace and security spaces. In this future, policy and practice are grounded in feminist approaches with the equitable reformation of power and gender dynamics as essential requirements to inclusive and sustainable peace.

Our Mission

OGIP strives to make current structures, policy, and practice in peace and security spaces more inclusive, intersectional, and decolonized through our three pillar approach. Engaging with Women, Peace, and Security (WPS) and the Youth, Peace, and Security (YPS) agendas, OGIP amplifies the experiences and perspectives of young and diverse people to challenge exclusive spaces and push these agendas further. OGIP believes in interdisciplinary, feminist research, outreach and advocacy as essential tools for advancing inclusive peace and security. By integrating young voices into peace and security conversations, we develop responsive and relevant agendas that reflect the concerns of younger generations.

The Three


OGIP is supported by 3 pillars of work:


Harnessing research to diversify and advance conversations on peace and security with contributions from young people in differing formats, including OGIP's research series and blog.


Growing our Youth Advocates Network, amplifying diverse voices in peace and security, and generating policy recommendations to challenge exclusionary structures and promote meaningful participation.

Outreach & Partnerships

Engaging with diverse organizations and individuals working in the field of peace and security through a youth-driven and feminist perspective.

our generation for inclusive peace

Youth is formally defined and understood as a transitional period from childhood to adulthood, often characterized as a period where an individual’s levels of independence, both personal and financial, are growing, though this definition fluctuates between different organizations and scholars. In the United Nations Security Council Resolution 2250 (2015) on Youth, Peace and Security, youth is defined as 18-29 years old with the recognition that there are differing definitions at the national and international level.

OGIP defines youth as up to the age of 35 with acknowledgment of the flexibility of the concept. OGIP accepts the inclusion of youth being in a “transition period” as youth is a time of great change and development, though OGIP asserts that this transitionary state equates to youth being unable to fully participate in policies which impact their future. Youth have a wide variety of valid experience and legitimate engagements and should be continually able to contribute and have their perspectives respected. Committing to meaningful engagement with young people demonstrates the value of diverse and unique perspectives; in the context of peace and security, this is about supporting inclusive, generational change and what this change means for the WPS and YPS agendas.
