The eleventh report of the Arab Network for NGOs

The Arab Civil Society Confronting Social Risks


The eleventh report of the Arab Network for NGOs, “The Arab Civil Society Confronting Social Risks” is funded by the Doha International Family Institute. The Institute is supporting the aims of the 2004 Doha Declaration on the Family by contributing to the global knowledge base on issues facing the Arab Family through the development and dissemination of high quality research.

The need for serious scientific studies about the Arab family is more pressing today than any other time with all the challenges faced by the family and the profound changes occurring in Arab societies impacting negatively the resilience of the family.

The issue approached in this report is centered about the nature of social risks threatening the Arab family and the roles played by Arab Civil Society Organizations to alleviate these risks or manage their consequences.

The Doha International Family Institute encourages knowledge exchange on issues related to the family across international and interdisciplinary network of researchers, policy-makers and service providers.

The main findings of country reports indicate important risks threatening the Arab family, specifically poverty, unemployment, illiteracy, drops out from school, social marginalization and exclusion, spinsterhood, early marriage of girls, violence, drugs abuse, child labor and passive exposure to internet.

Moreover, country reports show that the most vulnerable categories are for instance the poor, the illiterates, women heads of poor households, children and youth, representing thus the most important sectors of the population that need to be targeted by the social policies in the Arab countries.
