Global Youth: The Great Divide
AbstractThis paper will examine the growing divisions in world politics created by global capitalism as it applies to youth in both "first" and "third" world areas. It is important, I argue, that we rethink the categories used to describe youth in the global marketplace since the conceptual containers by which we have previously understood their subjectivity, role in the economy and polity, and relationship to the generations that mediate access to power and wealth in the world economy have shifted almost imperceptibly.
