Basic data

Title:
Arab Youth: From Engagement to Inclusion
Duration:
01/02/2012 to 28/02/2014
Abstract / short description:
This pilot study is conceived to accompany and document current developments in youth mobilization and participation in Arab states. It will collect and analyze data on the political demands formulated by youth, their relationship to the state and possible support by international actors. The project focuses on Egypt and Morocco, which have undergone different socio-political trajectories during and after last year's protests: revolutionary change and governmental reform respectively. Prospects for societal peace and political stability reside in the ability of the respective political systems to accommodate the demands of the young generation better than in the past. In cooperation with local partners, this study aims to identify patterns, correlates and typical actors which make a respective trajectory succeed or not.
