Young people in Yemen should be seen and perceived as partners not as perpetrators of violence. In times of distress and armed conflicts the majority of young people play positive roles in their communities but what they do is often overlooked. The political elites often tend to overlook the great work of young people so that they can use them for fueling the conflict.
