As the GCC countries face a youth bulge in their demography, the regimes cultivated them as important constituencies, and have been projecting their pro-youth strategies and policies. Despite several challenges, GCC youth operate from the advantages of relative stability, wealth, connectivity, and a milieu of diverse, skilled, multi-national workforce. With contributions from young minds, this volume looks at the potentials and possibilities for the GCC youths from this vantage point, their adaptations and the challenges facing their development.
