Youth Civic Engagement and Local Peacebuilding in the Middle East and North Africa: Prospects and Challenges for Community Development
Edited By Ibrahim Natil
This book investigates the ways in which young people engage with and contribute to civil society, community development and local peacebuilding in the Middle East and North Africa.
Youth engagement and contribution to civil society and local peacebuilding can play a crucial role in development, however there is often a lack of effective engagement, policies and opportunities for young people in policy and practice. This book analyses their experiences of civic engagement and community participation and the challenges they face, across diverse areas including youth empowerment, freedom of expression, mobilisation, ideologies, conflict resolution and peacebuilding. Drawing on cases from Yemen, Syria, Iran, Morocco and the Palestinian Territories, this book offers new insights on how youth are not only are shaped by, but also react to policies, conflict and constraints and challenges.
The insights drawn from this interdisciplinary collection will be of interest to researchers of civil society, youth, peacebuilding and development, as well as to policymakers, donors, and NGO staff
