Al Arabiya TV: Arab youths split over regional issues, survey indicates

May 09, 2017

Findings from the ninth annual ASDA’A Burson-Marsteller Arab Youth Survey reveal optimism has dropped among young Arabs across much of the region, and indicates a widening divide over hopes for the future between those living in the wealthy GCC states and those living elsewhere. The survey highlights a growing polarisation of views, inspiring its main theme, “The Middle East – a region divided”.  Just over half of those surveyed (52 per cent) said their country is headed in the right direction – a substantial decrease from just one year ago, when almost two-thirds (64 per cent) said they thought their country was going in the right direction. The UAE has once again topped the world’s countries most young Arabs wish to live in, according to a recent international survey, according to ASDA’A Burson-Marsteller Arab Youth Survey 2017.
