<![CDATA[Political Affairs, Peace & Security Commissioner's statement on ‘No Room for Hate Speech’ campaign]]>/en/article/political-affairs-peace-security-commissioner-s-statement-on-no-room-for-hate-speech-campaignDistinguished Ladies and Gentlemen,

Today, the 21st day of September, is International Peace Day. It presents us not only with a day of reflection regarding the imperative of living in a world devoid of threats to peace and security but also one in which we consider the realities of our societies with a view to highlight real challenges that threaten our peaceful co-existence. The shifting nature of threats to peace and security are reflective of the rise in intra-national conflicts over and above international conflicts with adverse impacts for nation-building and sustainable development. Both research and our wholesome realities as a continent has revealed that young women and men – the largest demographic in Africa – are impacted by these conflicts. However, empirical studies – backed by contemporary data – reflects the resilience and dedication of young African women and men to advance the course of peace, security, good governance and development towards the Africa we Want. Thus, it is with great pleasure that I, in recognition of the inherent value of African youth, am honored to provide opening remarks at this event to launch the ‘No Room for Hate Speech’ campaign.
