This study seeks to better understand the needs, aspirations, and challenges faced by displaced and local community youth.

Led by the Norwegian Refugee Council with support from the Information and Research Center - King Hussein Foundation (IRCKHF) and the International Blue Crescent Relief and Development Foundation (IBC), research was conducted in Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and the Kurdish Region of Iraq (KRI). 

The study confirmed that across the Middle East, a whole generation of young people from Syria and refugee-hosting countries is losing hope. Living in insecurity and often extreme poverty, they face many barriers to accessing education and economic opportunities.
