Are youths who are affected by conflict troublemakers or peacemakers? Although much of the research on this question has focused on the former, it is possible that conflict-affected youth could be encouraged to adopt peaceful values and constructively engage in society. In this research, we aimed to: (1) develop a way to measure peacebuilding values; and (2) understand how those peacebuilding values may facilitate civic participation. We focused our research on young people born after the 1998 peace accord in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
