MENARY Monitor is a weekly newsletter, a compilation of English, Arabic, French, Farsi, and Turkish news items from trusted sources in addition to insightful comments. MENARY Monitor is distributed on weekly basis to government institutions and policy makers, international organizations, researchers, and other relevant stakeholders. The main objective is to provide these stakeholders with trusted, accurate, and accessible updates on all matters concerning youth in the MENA region to save them time and effort and provide them with the points of concern requiring action.
2. The MENAACTION Youth Index (MYI):
There is an absence of attention for young people in the MENA region. This is manifested in the lack of proper programming along with the inadequacy of their quality, let alone the lack of urgency when it comes to policy making. MYI seeks to compile all youth-related data into one index. This index comprises of a variety of sub-indicators, including economic inclusion, educational opportunities, freedoms, equality, political engagement, cultural engagement, health, technology, and environment. MYI adopts Amartya Sen’s definition of Human Development “human development is about the expansion of citizens capabilities, including increasing citizens’ access and opportunities to the things they have reason to value.”
