Young Arab Voices: Shifting the Rhetoric on Youth in the MENA Region

Chatham House, London

Middle East and North Africa Programme, Emerging Policy Actors

Overview

This event forms part of a research collaboration with the British Council and the Anna Lindh Foundation, examining the regional context through the perspective of young people in the Middle East and North Africa. This collaboration has sought to understand the influence that cultural programmes have within the wider educational context, the avenues young people have to exercise their political voice, and the current role of the media in highlighting the multiplicity of youth voices.

This event will focus on some of the key issues highlighted in the research such as the role of education, and the extent to which young people feel they are have a role and a voice in the ongoing regional transition.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
