 بدا أداء العديد من بلدان منطقة الشرق الأوسط وشمال أفريقيا، قبل الربيع العربي، جيدا على جبهات تنموية متعددة حققت معدلات نمو مثيرة للإعجاب وعكست تحسنا في بعض مؤشرات مناخ الأعمال. ومع ذلك، فإن الكثيرين من أولئك الذين خرجوا إلى الشوارع يرون أن هذا النمو لم تستفد منه سوى قلة مميزة. وفي هذاالسياق، ينشر فريق سوق التنمية(Development Marketplace) سلسلة من الآراء على المدونة، تهدف إلى إستثارة النقاش من أجل استكشاف مدى إمكانية إعتماد نموذج جديد خاص بمنطقة الشرق الأوسط وشمال أفريقيا لتطوير إقتصاديات تنافسية قادرة على خلق وظائف مناسبة، مع تعزيز التنمية المستدامة والعدالة الاجتماعية والمساواة.

Can Social Enterprise Contribute to Inclusive Growth in Middle East & North Africa?

Before the Arab Spring, numerous Middle East and North Africa (MENA) countries appeared to be performing well on several developmental fronts, showing impressive growth rates and improving business climate indicators. However, many of those who took to the streets believed that this growth only benefited a privileged minority. In that context, the Development Marketplace (DM) team is publishing a series of blog posts that aim to stir a debate and discussion to explore how the MENA region can adopt a new development model for competitive economies to create decent jobs while promoting sustainable development, social justice and equity.

The purpose of the blog series will be to help us all gain better understanding of the potential, opportunities and challenges facing inclusive business, inclusive finance and social entrepreneurship in the region. The blog posts will be released periodically leading to the launch of the Egypt DM Competition. The Call for Proposals is scheduled to be released and circulated the first week of November 2012.
