Entitled “How gender affects young women opportunities in the Arab Mediterranean countries: Algeria, Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco, Tunisia", this policy report was written and coordinated by the team of the Center of Arab Woman for Training and Research (CAWTAR)
The objective of this paper is to discover how gender affects young women opportunities in the Arab Mediterranean Countries (AMC), and specifically in Algeria, Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco, and Tunisia. It argues that ‘lack of reform for youth employment’ and ‘persistent gender inequalities’ are the main factors that affect youth employment in the region. Furthermore, social barriers are hindering women’s participation in the public sphere. Based on these well identified main hindrances, the paper concludes with recommendation to concerned decision-makers.
