The SAHWA Project is a FP-7 interdisciplinary collaborative research project led by the Barcelona Center for International Affairs (CIDOB) and co-financed by the European Commission as part of its Research Framework Programme. The SAHWA Project brings together a consortium of fifteen partners from Europe and Arab countries to research youth prospects and perspectives in a context of multiple social, economic and political transitions in five Arab countries (Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt and Lebanon). The project expands over 2014-2016 and has a total budget of €3 million. The thematic axis around which the project will revolve are education, employment and social inclusion, political mobilization and participation, culture an values, international migration and mobility, gender, comparative experiences in other transition contexts and public policies and international cooperation.
“European Youth Cooperation Schemes in the Southern Mediterranean Context: One for all, all for one?”
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.
Within the framework of SAHWA Project, an EU-funded FP7 Project led by the Barcelona Centre for International Affairs (CIDOB), video-recorded Life Stories (Deliverable D4.2) were carried out in 4 out of the 5 SAHWA countries - Algeria, Lebanon, Morocco and Tunisia – between April and September 2015.
