Abstract

This essay comprises the reflections of scholars from different regions and continents, mainly from the South, fused with comments and ideas from Northern scholars, to form both a patchwork quilt and integrated dialogue concerning globalized youth studies. It focuses on the development of youth studies in Africa, Latin America, parts of Asia, and the Caribbean, keeping in mind that the field may not yet exist in some of these regions. This has been a very difficult and unwieldy exercise. Studies of young people have emerged for different reasons, including academic, governmental, and international contexts, making comparison and integration awkward. For this reason, the essay simply lists contributors in alphabetical order, all of whom contributed parts of the essay.
