oa Africa Insight - Reconstructing Youth Development: A Southern African perspective

Volume 32, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0256-2804



This article follows from a long-term engagement - as a researcher and adviser - with policies and practices for 'youth development' across Eastern and Southern Africa . My interest at this point is not so much to elaborate on the specifics of youth programmes as they unfold, but rather to place current policy debates within a wider context of changing social and economic circumstances that impinge on the lives of young people, and to relate these to evolving discourses regarding exclusion and inclusion that influence thinking on social policy.
