Abstract

This collection aims to cover topics that are essential to understanding the conditions leading to the Arab Spring, including the persistence of high youth unemployment despite healthy economic growth, the co-existence of migration and unemployment, and the unusually early retirement among prime-age workers. For anyone conducting research on Jordan, this book provides careful analyses of the most recent data on the Jordanian labour market and its underlying patterns, writes Henrike M. Hirnstein.
