The Committee on Peace and Security (CPS) of the AYM was established in 2015 following the creation of the African Youth Movement. As part of AYM, the Committee’s contribution is to support Youth engagement in Peace and Security in Africa as a positive landmark for the future.
The CPS envisions leading activities in humanitarian aid, disaster relief and recovery. The committee promotes Youth involvement and engagement in disaster management, and serving needs of communities affected by social injustice, violence, armed conflicts and terrorism. Thus, create positive change in the field of peace and security in Africa.
Since its establishment, the Committee has responded to the fight against Terrorism in Africa and conducted research and publication on contemporary challenges to peace and security in Africa.
