Azerbaijan Youth Union For Peace And Security

AYUPS is a not-for-profit youth organization to promote youth initiatives in Azerbaijan for international Peace and security, to develop international mutual understanding, friendship and cooperation between youth of Azerbaijan and other states, and to involve the local youth in the improvement of civil society, based upon human rights protection. In 1998 AYUPS was adopted as an observer-member of "Young Europeans for Security" (YES Europe), enabling AYUPS to participate in several international conferences. AYUPS also has a partnership with Experiment in International Living in Ireland, leading to a joint youth exchange on conflict resolution between N. Ireland, Ireland, Azerbaijan, and Armenia. AYUPS promotes the building of cultures of Peace, and is participating in the United Youth Conference of One Day Foundation.
