SAHWA’s Policy Paper on youth unemployment in the AMCs now online!


Entitled “Redefining and tackling (youth) unemployment in the Arab Mediterranean context”, this policy report was written by Asuman Göksel, Özgehan Şenyuva and Sümercan Bozkurt Güngen (Middle East Technical University -METU-)

This policy paper aims to critically discuss the redefinition of unemployment as “the problem of youth” within the context of neoliberal transformation and question the potential of the proposed policy measures developed in line with such a definition to solve the problem of youth unemployment problem in the five AMCs. The paper argues that the “one-size-fits-all” type of policy measures –embodied in ALMPs by a focus on training and entrepreneurship– implemented in the AMCs have been inefficient and ineffective at eliminating the unemployment problem, as proven by the needs, realities, experiences and demands of young people in these countries.
