Life stories: youth experience through video interviews from Algeria, Lebanon, Morocco and Tunisia
December 8, 2015
A series of video ‘life-stories’ has been published by the EU-funded Sahwa project, highlighting the concerns and aspirations of young people in Algeria, Lebanon, Morocco and Tunisia.
The idea was to film two conversations per country (a young man and a young woman) in order to reflect the stories of a young generation from different countries.
All the video interviews use the same semi-structured questionnaire, around eight main areas:
1) Introducing themselves;
2) How they see their generation;
3) How they see adults and generational relations;
4) Presentation of their village/neighbourhood/city;
5) The current situation in the world;
6) Remembering childhood and adolescence;
7) The current situation in their country;
8) Their view of the future.
The SAHWA Project – funded under the EU’s seventh framework programme for research FP7 – brings together partners from Europe and Arab countries to research youth prospects and perspectives in a context of multiple social, economic and political transitions in five Arab Mediterranean countries (Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt and Lebanon).
