The establishment still matters 
Believe it or not, the data in the survey finds that Arab youth have confidence in their governments when it comes to sorting out several issues, and their confidence in the Arab Spring is dropping, which is most likely due to the lack of tangible results that have occurred thus far. Over half of the youth interviewed still find the Arab world better off as a result of the Arab Spring, and they also agree that their lives will be better off because of it five years from now. One caveat? Numbers significantly dropped from 2012 when 72 of the 100 Arab youth polled said that they believe their lives are better off because of the Arab Spring. As of now, only 54 still feel that way. While they expressed the most confidence in their government when it comes to economic stability, living standards, unemployment, and security issues, they were the least confident in issues such as wealth creation, scarcity of resources and climate change.

“Get off the couch, and get a job!”
The biggest fears that the surveyed Arab youth expressed were unemployment and the rising cost of living. Both are issues that have taken a much larger precedent over the past few years. Unemployment concerns were expressed by 49% of Arab youth, whereas 63% mentioned the rising costs of living. When it comes to the latter, it’s an issue that seems to be of equal concern regardless of region; whether you’re in the GCC, Levant or Northern Africa, approximately 60% of Arab youth surveyed noted it. When it comes to unemployment, there is little concern in places like Oman, UAE, and Kuwait, averaging at around 36%. That said, 62% of youth in Egypt are greatly concerned about unemployment, while countries like Jordan, Lebanon, Tunisia, and Iraq are all hovering around 55%.

Why can’t we all just get along?
It almost makes sense for Arab youth to be more concerned about their safety, rather than how effective or swift the democratization process has been in their respective countries. This is probably given the increased violent situations that have occurred in Arab states that have had popular uprisings. Between 2013 and 2014, the number of Arab youth in the survey who believed that civil unrest is the main obstacle in the region has increased from 44 to 55, whereas lack of democracy decreased from 43 to 38. Interestingly enough, this is something that youth across the region seem to find, more than lack of democracy, lack of strong leadership, and even terrorism. Perhaps the fact that increase of civil unrest usually stalls democratization changed their minds, especially with reports of spillovers from the Syrian conflict, and the ongoing series of uprisings in Egypt.

 ‘Treps in the making are multiplying 
Entrepreneurial spirit is quite high among Arab youth- most believe that more businesses will start up in this generation, both in and out of the GCC. While percentages average at around 67%, entrepreneurial spirit is exceptionally in high in Jordan and Egypt at 71%, both startup hubs in the region. That said, it’s surprising to see Palestine and Libya up there at 71% and 72% respectively. There is also an increased preference in working in the private sector; the GCC youth’s interest has been steadily increasing since 2012, but those outside the GCC had a much higher interest in 2012, despite this year’s increase. One thing is for sure though, while more Arab youth still prefer working in the public sector, those numbers are steadily in decline. This could possibly correlate with political instability or the potential instability, depending on external factors.

Come on, give us a break! 
An overwhelming percentage of young Arabs find that energy, electricity, and vehicle fuel (gasoline) should be subsidized by their respective governments, averaging at 74%. When it comes to the biggest challenge facing the region today, climate change and the environment is at the bottom, and the rising cost of living at the top. What’s interesting is that because energy costs are subsidized across the region, you can safely assume that this is related to the lack of concern for climate change and the environment. Stick with me here- while rising cost of living is the biggest concern, government subsidies on energy and electricity will not do much to help. In fact, paying for energy, electricity, and fuel at the market rate would help alleviate that issue; Jordan recently put this into action in 2012.
