More than 1,000 young people are in Qatar as it hosts the youth version of the United Nations, the first such large-scale conference of its kind to take place in the Gulf region.

Students play the role of UN diplomats, each representing a country other than their own, and debating resolutions on disarmament, women's rights, conflict resolution and other policies that would affect their futures.

The resolutions and ideas put forward at the end of the conference will be sent to the UN in New York and become an official part of the UN archives.
