Capacity Building

Youth Network Initiative

The youth network is a Malcom H. Kerr Carnegie Middle East Center initiative that focuses on engaging with the emerging generation of Arab thinkers and authors on a variety of issues relevant to them. Sada, Carnegie’s online policy journal, and the Malcolm H. Kerr Carnegie Middle East Center convened a group of more than twenty up-and-coming young thinkers, researchers, analysts, and writers from different disciplines to examine the roles and functions of youth in the modern Middle East. The discussions were aimed at determining potential areas of research and collaboration across the region on issues of importance to the next generation. The discussions also helped identify new scholars with talent for policy analysis.

The Carnegie Middle East Center works with regional partners to build the capacity of emerging scholars and institutions in the Middle East and North Africa.
