MENA-OECD Resilience Task Force Annual Meeting, Jeddah 4 – 5 December 2018; Background Paper for Session 1: Rebuilding a Social Contract Based on Social Dialogue


The MENA-OECD Resilience Task Force addresses several issues crucial to the emergence of stable and legitimate social contracts in the region. The Task Force’s main objectives are to define measures that link short-term responses with longer term, structural reforms; assist MENA countries’ efforts to improve their investment climates and private sector job creation; work with governments to strengthen institutions; and improve the knowledge base through resilience systems analysis. Achieving these objectives will require dialogue on socio-economic inclusion and cohesion as well as on governance and reforms, supported by the targeted provision of technical and financial support to addressing socio-economic development bottlenecks. The social contract concept offers a means of better understanding the social and political implications of measures aimed at strengthening economic resilience.
