Arab Human Development Report 2005 Towards the Rise of Women in the Arab World

Feb 13, 2013

This year’s Arab Human Development Report marks the fourth, in a four-part series that has made a significant contribution to the debate on the development challenges facing the Arab world.


This year’s report presents a compelling argument as to why realising the full
potential of Arab women is an indispensable prerequisite for development in all Arab states. It argues persuasively that the long hoped-for Arab “renaissance” cannot and will not be accomplished unless the obstacles preventing women from enjoying their human rights and contributing more fully to development are eliminated and replaced with greater access to the “tools” of development,
including education and healthcare.
