A factor analysis has been performed to show which relevant elements may prevent young women from engaging with entrepreneurial activities. Yet, a comparison of perceptions about the educational system has been also presented to understand how a supportive educational environment may affect the previous analysis.Findings: The results indicated that a strong supportive education system to some extent may reduce the perception of potential barriers for entrepreneurship but the overall impact can be limited. Conversely, an educational system lacking a supportive environment and concrete initiatives can deeply affect and worsen the fears of engaging in entrepreneurship amongst female students.Originality/value: The role of women in the Arab World is quite marked and the reluctance of women to take a more decisive engagement in entrepreneurship may be reinforced by conservative, societal traditions.
From the papers: “Britain is threatening to review security co operation with France should it try to shift the Calais border back across the Channel,” says the Times, as Home Secretary Amber Rudd prepared to meet her French counterpart, Bernard Cazeneuve. The article continues: “Senior government sources issued the warning after leading French politicians called for the unravelling of a 2003 deal under which British border checks take place in Calais.” The Telegraph says the ministers’ meeting “follows demands from French politicians to rip up the current arrangements in the wake of Brexit, a threat that experts said could double asylum claims to 90,000 each year”. The paper also suggests that “President Francois Hollande, who agreed there would be no change earlier this year, could be unseated in the nation’s 2017 elections”.
