Missed by the Boom, Hurt by the Bust: Making Markets Work for Young People in the Middle East (2009)Auther:Wolfensohn Center for Development at Brookings and the Dubai School of Government || Date:2009
The report, issued by the Wolfensohn Center for Development at Brookings and the Dubai School of Government, analyses the early risks faced by young people in the Middle East during the global economic downturn. It shows that, even during the “boom” years of 2002 to 2008, young people in the Middle East did not benefit from high quality education and struggled to find decent jobs. For Middle Eastern economies to emerge stronger, the report suggests that policies forged during the downturn must be consistent with long-term goals of cultivating a skilled workforce, expanding the role of the private sector, and reducing the appeal of government employment.

Youth Exclusion in Yemen: Tackling the Twin Defi cits of Human Development and Natural Resources (2009)Auther: Ragui Assaad, Ghada Barsoum, Emily Cupito and Daniel Egel. || Date:Nov 2009
This paper identifies processes through which many Yemeni youth are excluded from the opportunity to become productive adults and positive contributors to society. It sets forth the idea that many youth face social exclusion, whereby they are cut off from the resources and institutions that could assist them in their transition to adulthood. The authors use the life cycle approach to identify the pathways through which youth are excluded, focusing on processes of exclusion in educational attainment, livelihood and family formation. The study then concludes by discussing policies that affect youth and by recommending ways for policymakers to promote youth inclusion in the future.

The Effects of a Very Young Age Structure in Yemen: A Country Case StudyAuther:ELIZABETH LEAHY MADSEN || Date:April 1, 2010
Yemen has the most youthful age structure in the world outside of sub-Saharan Africa, and its demographic situation is acknowledged by its government and external partners alike as a major challenge to the country’s continued development. This report begins by briefly describing Yemen’s current and projected population age structure before surveying security, governance, economic development, climate change, and gender, and assesses how these focus issues might be affected by demography. The report then outlines key demographic trends, such as age at marriage, desired family size and contraceptive use. Data from recent surveys conducted in Yemen provide insight into the attitudes of women and young people on these issues. To evaluate the response of Yemen’s government and other actors to demographic issues, national policies on population and reproductive health are analyzed, and the activities of nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and international donors in the population sector are summarized. The report concludes with a review of the opportunities and challenges facing Yemen related to age structure, and offers related policy recommendations.
