Migration Aspirations and Experiences of Egyptian Youth

This report examines Egyptian youth’s international migration intentions as well as past migration experience, both international and internal. According to the United Nations Development Programme’s 2010 Egypt Human Development Report (EHDR) there are 19.8 million young men and women in Egypt in the age group 18–29. This is close to one quarter of the total population, which represents both a risk and an opportunity for the nation.
