The fifth pillar of UNSCR 2250 handles another key issue for long lasting and sustainable peace: that of disengagement and reintegration.

This specific area refers to what many people working in the field would associate with Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration (DDR), action plans that are used for peacekeeping operations after conflicts and civil wars. This pillar builds on the principles of DDR, but is specifically directed towards young people victimized by armed conflict, whether as an active combattants or as someone being hurt by violence conducted by other actors. Disarmament and demobilization refers to processes of laying down arms and dissolving military troops from a combat-ready status.

However, UNSCR 2250 recognizes and emphasizes the role of reintegration, and the returning to civilian life. In this sense, processes of involving all relevant actors (private sector, public sector, civil society, intergovernmental organizations, etc.) to strengthen youth employability, capacity building efforts should be planned in order to increase incentives to promote a culture of peace.

The fundamental key here is to recognize capabilities, skills and most importantly the need of youth and create inclusive policies that prevent exclusion and marginalization of young people.
