The aim of this academic conference is to bring together leading researchers and high-level policy makers to discuss and propose creative solutions to reverse the brain drain, address the refugee crisis and enhance education and labour market outcomes for all.

Nine years after the Arab Spring, youth unemployment rates in the MENA region are still double the overall unemployment rate and among the highest in the world. As the conflict in Syria stretches into its eighth year, the prolonged presence of Syrian refugees alongside the protracted situation of Palestinian refugees has fueled policy debates in host countries and globally about the education and labour market outcomes of refugees in protracted refugee situations.

Poor labour market outcomes are caused by a number of factors including legal status, education and training systems that are not producing the required skills, and youth labour market aspirations that are not in line with changing labour market demand. Skills mismatches and the exclusion of segments of youth from the labour market have negative implications on individuals and on the economy, leading to brain drain, skills underutilization and marginalization.
