Overview

This book gathers international and interdisciplinary work on youth studies from the Global South, exploring issues such as continuity and change in youth transitions from education to work; contemporary debates on the impact of mobility, marginalization and violence on young lives; how digital technologies shape youth experiences; and how different institutions, cultures and structures generate a diversity of experiences of what it means to be young. The book is divided into four broad thematic sections: (a) Education, work and social structure; (b) Identity and belonging; (c) Place, mobilities and marginalization; and (d) Power, social conflict and new forms of political participation of youth.

Reviews

The work represents a contribution to research on the theme of participation but, above all, it outlines a clear gap between traditional forms of involvement ... . this volume has the merit of providing us with a new in terpretative paradigm of young people from the South of the world through the formulation of analytical categories that distance themselves from an a-contextual and often stereotyped theoretical analysis of the lives of young people. (Mauro Giardiello, Youth and Globalization, Vol. 1 (2), 2019)
