Four case studies on Jordan, Tunisia, Oman, and Egypt were conducted by a research team in the Arab region as part of Component I of the project "Entrepreneurship Education (EPE) in the Arab States" (2009-2012). The methodology used to conduct the case studies included desk reviews of relevant documents and reports at the country level, analyses of the education systems, discussions with key officials/ specialists, and two workshops held by the NCHRD-Jordan for the research team (August and December 2009) on the outcomes and results. The case studies focused on socio-economic development, with a particular emphasis on how EPE can enhance employment opportunities for youth and graduates in the private sector and provide the young generation with knowledge and skills on how to manage and open small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
