Arab Human Development Report 2016

Youth and the Prospects for Human Development in a Changing Reality

This report addresses the development challenges facing young people in the Arab region. The current young generation is the largest this region has had over the past 50 years, making up 30% of its population. In light of the youth-led movements during and after the 2011 uprisings, the report argues for a renewed policy focus on youth development in the region. It deals with the pillars of human development (income, education and health) with the attainment, achievement and equitable distribution of education, and with the challenges of finding stable and decent jobs. With protracted conflict in several Arab countries, young Arabs have become victims or perpetrators of violence, challenged by difficulties of mobility and migration. AHDR 2016 aims to engage youth in building a better future.

Hide / Show Abstract

The central theme of this report is young people in the Arab region. Never before has the region had this high share of young people. Although age distribution is only one demographic variable in the complexities of social and political life, the large presence of youth in Arab countries is a crucial reality conditioning the region’s political, economic, social and cultural development.
