Majid and Badr Jafar are busy guiding Crescent Group through expansion in Iraq, embracing global diversification, and tackling family governance. They are also sounding the alarm over the bulge in Arab youth unemployment, and the $700 billion family business governance time bomb. CampdenFB reports 

Badr Jafar has had a long day. Dressed in immaculate business attire, his tie is askew and, although it is mid-afternoon, he’s still got a packed schedule for the rest of his day. In the evening, he flies to New York for a meeting at the United Nations about the Pearl Initiative, the private-sector partnership he set up to enrich Gulf corporate accountability and transparency.
