January 2011
This pamphlet emphasizes the need for sustainable growth strategies to promote investment in human resources and the expansion of social protection. It also stresses the need for a new system of governance, which is compatible with changing social relations in Arab societies, as clearly reflected by development visions and strategies in Arab countries. The pamphlet also highlights the need to come up with a new distribution of responsibilities so as to involve both private and public sectors and enhance government responsibility for ensuring equality and social inclusion.
