The world has never been so young, with about 1.8 billion between the ages of 10 and 24, the majority of whom live in developing countries. But young people’s transitions to adulthood have become increasingly uncertain.
Across the globe a growing number of young women and men, both educated and non-educated, find themselves unemployed or underemployed, and have to improvise livelihoods outside of dominant economic frameworks.
Alcinda Honwana will discuss waithood - a liminal space in which young people are neither dependent children nor fully autonomous adults.
Young people in waithood are living in the periphery of major socio-economic processes, sometimes migration and often no longer trusting the ability of their leaders to deliver on their needs and expectations.
