Global Ethics Weekly: Youth Unemployment & Refugees in the Middle East & North Africa, with Mariel Davis

October 25, 2018

The Middle East and North Africa has a huge youth and young adult population—65 percent of the people in the region are under 30—but unfortunately unemployment among this group remains high. Education for Employment's Mariel Davis details how the organization is working to change this. She also discusses the challenges facing refugees, with a focus on Jordan.

Davis recently wrote an article for Carnegie Council, touching on some of these issues, "Unlocking the Potential of Young Working Women in the Middle East and North Africa." This podcast also references this 2015 event Carnegie Council hosted with Education for Employment's Ronald Bruder, founder and chair, and Jasmine Nahhas di Florio, vice president of strategy and partnerships, and this 2015 Carnegie New Leaders Podcast with Davis.
