The Middle East and North Africa is home to eight percent of the world s population, five percent of global GDP, and 58 percent of global reserves of oil and gas. It is also one of the most unstable regions of the world, characterised by protracted conflicts and complex issues around refugee and displaced communities. It has the highest rate of youth unemployment and double the global average for female unemployment. Collectively this is placing a huge strain on existing political, social and economic structures, adding to the uncertainty and fragility of the region.
The British Council retains an on-the-ground presence in all 17 MENA countries. This includes maintaining operations and programmes in Libya, Yemen and Syria, working through partners and locally engaged staff. Over the last five years we have extended the scope of our work over by aligning our cultural relations activities to UK and international priorities, such as in relation to major issues affecting the region, namely the Syrian refugee crisis, and the rise of violent extremism. In parallel to this we continue to provide support to individuals, institutions and governments helping them address some of the underlying long-term demographic, societal and systemic features which have been holding back reform, stifling growth, and blocking opportunities for young people.
Our work takes a long-term approach to engagement, helping to build trust and influence for the UK.
