About the product

This year’s Survey builds on the right to development themes adopted in previous issues and focuses on two significant concerns that have long constrained the right to development in the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) region: capital flight and unemployment. The publication illustrates recent economic trends and developments in the ESCWA region, capital flows to the region, discusses rights-based employment creation, and gives synopsis of integrated social policies. It concludes with a rights-based macroeconomic policy for the ESCWA region.
