In her most recent book, Arab Dawn: Arab Youth and the Demographic Dividend They Will Bring, Bessma Momani challenges the negative assumptions surrounding the region, and focuses on the positive changes among Arab youth. According to Momani, this generation is more cosmopolitan, educated, entrepreneurial, creative, and tolerant than their parents. The Arab Spring was an initial cry for help against dysfunctional politics. Future change will require individual effort on the part of youth and new policies targeted towards them. Momani describes the hidden potential of the Middle East’s youth.
