    Background: The thirty-sixth session of the Economic and Social council of the Arab League opened at the League headquarters in Tunis on February 8. Delegates from more than twenty Arab countries were welcomed to the session by Arab League Secretary-General Chadli Klibi. The main topic under discussion was the movement of workers between member countries. some of the bigger North African members have experienced economic difficulties lately with the return of thousands of workers, victims of the recession in Europe and a flood of non-Arab manual labour into some of the oil-producing Gulf members of the League. Delegates will try out to sort out a balance between the two groups. However, one of the biggest hurdles to free movement of Arab League workers -- the closure of the border between Syria and Iraq -- is considered too delicate to touch. Instead, that issue will be referred to a future meeting of the more powerful council of Foreign Ministers of the Arab League.
