Seminar at University of Oxford discusses Third Arab Knowledge Report
Date: 3rd of Septmber 2015
The fourth event in a series of regional and national workshops that MBRF and UNDP are hosting in Arab and international cities has taken discussions of the Third Arab Knowledge Report to the University of Oxford.
Like its predecessors this events aims at ensuring the widest dissemination of the report’s findings to different constituents who have an interest in the Arab region, its development and its quest to establish a knowledge-based society.
This post-launch event in Oxford focuses on the linkage between education and employment and the ways in which this linkage works to create opportunities for youth.
In that vein, recommendations of this Arab Knowledge Report reflect well priority issues on the ground as it has built its research using a rich amalgam of expertise and voices with more than 600 experts and around 5800 university students
The Third Arab Knowledge Report along with its predecessors in 2009 and 2011 constitute a body of quantitative and qualitative evidence that provides a comprehensive understanding the situation of knowledge in the Arab region. Such an understandingis a prerequisite to pursuing any initiative to build a knowledge society.
