Entrepreneurship Education (EPE) in the Arab States is a joint project between UNESCO and StratREAL Foundation, United Kingdom, which includes two main components: Component 1: The collection, systematization and dissemination of innovative and successful experiences of EPE from different countries of the region (2009–2010); Component 2: Providing technical support for the development of strategic plans to facilitate the incorporation of the concept of EPE in education systems (2010–2012). The UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre for TVET-Bonn is taking the lead in the implementation of the project, in co-operation with UNESCO Regional Bureau for Education in the Arab States - Beirut. Other UNESCO Field Offices in the Arab region are also involved in the project. The National Centre for Human Resources Development (a UNEVOC Centre in Jordan) had been commissioned for the implementation of component one (2009–2010). Educational experts from four countries (Egypt, Jordan, Oman and Tunisia) prepared case studies on the current situation of entrepreneurship education (Sections 1–4). Based on the four country case studies, a regional synthesis report (Section 5) was prepared, which highlights the national and regional contexts and expectations of EPE in the Arab region. The document will be disseminated in Arabic and English to promote EPE in the education systems of Member States in the region.
