What do we know about Arab youth? Where are youth located on the political map? What is their impact on political reform policies in Arab states? To what extent are youth considered a part of the slow transformation towards democracy? How do they become part of the solution? A flood of questions bewilders researchers in their pursuit of workable propositions on youth engagement in the democratization process and in laying the foundations for good governance. The concepts are shrouded in mystery and are puzzling for researchers and young people alike.
