In 2015, Med Culture commissioned a study on Employability in the cultural and creative sectors in Arab Mediterranean countries: The cases of Palestine, Egypt, Tunisia and Morocco.
The study addresses issues and challenges related to employability in the cultural and creative industries in the above mentioned four countries.
The objective of the present study is threefold:
- To discuss how the cultural and creative sectors affect employment, and more particularly youth employment;
- To scrutinise the main challenges for employment in these sectors, particularly in relation to the mismatch between the offer in skills (in universities and training centres) and the demand of competencies from the employment market;
- To consequently rethink employment policies and programmes that are on offer in the employment market.
The present study is invaluable due to the importance of the cultural and creative sectors in contemporary economies in general, and in the named countries of the region in particular.
