The Brookings Doha Centre is organising an essay contest to engage young Arabs between the ages of 21 and 30 and to identify the talents and contributions of a new generation.

By providing a channel for young people to offer creative and constructive solutions to key issues facing the region, the Brookings Doha Centre seeks to generate new and innovative ideas on the regional level.

Essay Topic: 

‘What do you consider the most significant economic or social change that would create a positive change for your country’s citizens? Please suggest policy recommendations that your government can take to help bring this change about.’ 

First place winner will receive $2000, the runner up $1000, and honourable mention(s) $500. A panel of leading scholars and experts from the Brookings Institution may select one or more winning essays to be published by the Brookings Doha Centre, and featured on the centre’s website. Selected winner(s) may be hosted at an event at the Brookings Doha Centre to present their ideas to the media, academe, diplomatic and policy communities. Entries must be submitted by 1 November 2018.
