Press/Media: Research

Description

Article in Voice of America focusing on some key results from the Arab Transofrmations project and interviewing project leader, Andrea Teti.

People in the Middle East and North Africa are still hoping for jobs, social justice and security five years after the start of the Arab Spring. And change in European Union policy towards Arab countries is needed to limit economic migration and further destabilization of the region, according to new research.

The European Union can play a crucial role in stabilizing the Middle East and North Africa region and reducing migration flows if its policies focused more on fighting political and socioeconomic injustice. Those are some of the conclusions the European Commission-funded Arab Transformations Project presented Thursday in Brussels.
