SAHWA’s Background Papers on Arab Mediterranean Youth are now available!

Between June 2014 and January 2015, the SAHWA partners have been working on the background papers that we present today.


The issues dealt with range from employment and opportunities for young people to culture and lifestyles, including political engagement and comparisons between political transformations underway in the south Mediterranean region and eastern Europe. The aim of these Background Papers is to shed light on issues related to young people in the 5 countries concerned by the SAHWA project (Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt and Lebanon), which deserve to be empirically, analytically and theoretically exploited by the researchers involved into SAHWA.

 

Now we are pleased to introduce 7 papers that have allowed us to come to an important number of key concepts:
