Youth at the Margins: Prospects for the Youth in the Arab Mediterranean Countries

Publication date:
José Sánchez García and Elena Sánchez-Montijano (scientific coordinators)

The 2011 Arab uprisings led to a great proliferation of studies on the situations in the Arab countries of the Mediterranean, with particular attention given to their young people, whose role was particularly central. Seven years on, in-depth exploration is still needed of the conditions in which millions of (mainly young) people demanded change. In this context, issue 118 of Revista CIDOB d’Afers Internacionals uses the analysis of original quantitative and qualitative data to examine the state and diversity of the forms of socioeconomic, political and cultural marginalisation facing the region's young men and women, as well as the strategies and routes of contestation by which they escape them.
