Inclusion: Meeting the 100 Million Youth Challenge
12 Dec 2007, Navtej Dhillon and Tarik Yousef
Dhillon and Yousef present a snapshot preview of the Initiative’s integrated framework for analysis in “Inclusion: Meeting the 100 Million Youth Challenge."
Available in both Arabic and English, the publication assesses the challenges and opportunities facing youth in the Middle East. Through country case studies and personal stories, the publication contextualizes the complexity of the issue and generates recommendations that promote inclusion.
Statistics and data analysis highlight current realities and underline the importance of two major themes: 1) translating the demographic bulge into a dividend to improve incomes per capita, bolster savings and investment, and improve social welfare; and 2) creating a new social contract that meets the expectations and aspirations of youth.
