Towards the enforcement of the right to peace is an award-winning global advocacy programme aimed at strengthening the legal framework on the human right to peace and crimes against peace. The programme created the Global Coalition of Youth Ambassadors for the Right to Peace, a global network of young leaders who are campaigning for this noble cause in the global order. The global advocacy programme aims to initiate the work on domestic, regional and international instruments that would codify the human right to peace and crimes against peace. The programme wants to revive the work in the UN Human Rights Council and the General Assembly on the human right to peace and initiate the work in the Assembly of States Parties to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court on crimes against peace, bringing the perspective of young leaders into the discussion.
Youth Ambassadors for the Right to Peace are regularly selected from the pool of candidates from non-represented States. While there is no deadline to apply, once a Youth Ambassador is appointed for a specific State, the applications from that State are no longer considered. For a full list of non-represented States, it is recommended to regularly visit the webpage of the Global Coalition of Youth Ambassadors for the Right to Peace with the global map here.
