Youth in the Arab World: The Reality of Change
What are the undercurrents of the protest movements in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA)? Find out from our February speaker, Ahmed Younis. A Senior Analyst for the Gallup Center for Muslim Studies and the Abu Dhabi Gallup Center, Younis has grasp of a vast inventory of statistics about the numbers, trends and opinions of young people across MENA.

As part of his Gallup portfolio, Ahmed served as Director of Strategic Partnerships and Communications for Silatech, a youth employment initiative of Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser with the broad support of global leaders. Silatech promotes large-scale job creation in the Middle East and North Africa. Ahmed continues to lead Gallup's efforts with Silatech, studying the opinions of young people across the Middle East and North Africa to catalyze opportunities to create jobs that fortify the region's economy.

Named one of the "Power 500" of the Arab world and one of the 500 Most Famous Arabs in the world by Arabian Business Magazine, Younis is the author of "American Muslims: Voir Dire," a post 9/11 look at the debate surrounding American Muslims and their country.
