Reversing the Vicious Circle in North Africa's Political Economy. Confronting Rural, Urban and Youth related Challenges


This report provides an analysis of the policy failures behind the process of marginalization and exclusion that was at the origin of the popular uprisings at the beginning of 2011, with a view to discussing alternative policy responses and assessing the prospects for seriously rethinking previous economic policies. These issues are investigated from the perspective of three different - but interrelated - challenges: the rural population, the urban population, and the youth.

Paper presented at the seminar on "The Socio-Economic Challenges Facing North African Countries", Rome, 14 December 2011.
