Promoting the Empowerment of Marginalized Social Groups in the Arab Region

January 2014
This pamphlet examines key issues related to the empowerment of three marginalized social groups in the Arab region, namely youth, older people and persons with disabilities, with a view to informing the intergovernmental debate at the global level.

The pamphlet was presented to the fifty-second session of the Commission for Social Development, which tackled the priority theme “Promoting empowerment of people in achieving poverty eradication, social integration and full employment and decent work for all” (New York, 11-21 February 2014).
