0218 - Social Context: Demography, Employment, and Urbanization Tessler: The origins of Popular Support for Islamist Movements Political and economic circumstances of MENA rather than religious and cultural  traditions of their inhabitants make Islamist movement popular.  The   government   has   been   unable   to   create   jobs   on   the   scale   needed   to  accommodate the country’s expanding population. Urban unemployment among the  young, especially those with limited schooling As the situation continues to deteriorate, or at least fails to improves, well-educated  people are also unemployed. Young people began to attach little importance to their  diplomas. Many young people seek an education in the hope of achieving a better life, and a  large proportion of these are disappointed before completing their studies. Even  though primary school education has dramatically expanded, higher education is  unable to match the demand following the completion of primary education, requiring  many young people to drop out after only six or eight years of education. With even  higher school and university graduates having difficulty finding suitable jobs, the  prospects are particularly dim for those with only primary schooling.  Inadequate housing is another source of discontent. The population of many Arab  countries is growing by 3 % per year.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
