Bleak job prospects for youth in occupied Palestine

Palestinian college graduates in the occupied Palestinian territories are confronting a reality that flies in the face of conventional wisdom.

Their chances of finding a job are markedly worse than their peers who have not completed higher education and it is causing frustration for a generation of well-educated Palestinians.

The Palestinian minister of education worries that, with the Israeli occupation limiting opportunities, young Palestinians are not being guided towards what jobs, mostly vocational, are available.
