This panel will review recent developments in the region through the perspective of young people who made these changes happen by tackling the challenges of exclusion, poverty and inequality. Five young activists from Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Tunisia and Yemen, who were influential in profiling key issues, participating in protests and mobilizing peers into action on the streets of several cities of North Africa and the Middle East, will shed light on the socio-economic factors that drove them to become “agents of history”.
