This publication is one of a series of analytical Reports issued by the Population and Social Development Section of the Social Development Division at the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA). It aims to deepen knowledge of the interrelation between population and development issues. The fifth edition of this Report focuses on the millions of young people in the ESCWA member countries suffering multifaceted exclusion, which impede life progress of young people and reduce their integration in society. Expeditious short and medium term interventions within declared powerful youth policies guided by the World Program of Action for Youth to the Year 2000 and Beyond and best international practices are needed for national and regional development.
