A Generation in the Waithood –

Youth without perspectives as a catalyst of the “Arab Spring”

“Without the perspective of having a job, the youth of the Arab countries are not motivated to leave their parents’ homes, let alone to set up their own families. This leads to a young generation that is in the situation of waithood, waiting for a better future”, claimed Justin Sykes, manager for social innovations at the Qatari Think Tank Silatech at the beginning of his lecture on “Entrepreneurship as Social Policy”.
