Engaging Children and Youth in Africa

Methodological and Phenomenological Issues

edited by Mwenda Ntarangwi, Guy Massart

Representing research from east, central, west, and southern Africa, this study provides a well-balanced analysis of on-the-ground data with methodological and phenomenological issues that abound in much of research in Africa today. With an introduction that charts some of the most critical approaches in African-centred research on children and youth, contributors to the volume give the reader a glimpse of the product of engaged research that places children and youth at the centre of analysis. The authors follow recent studies that have posited African childhood and youth beyond constraining Western notions of vulnerability or innocence. From this, they capture the ways in which recent advances in technology, the intensification of global processes, and continued weakening of the nation-state have contributed to new ways of being children and youth and how they have provided a new lens through which to study social change.
