Abstract:This special issue is the result of an international conference (Dakar, 2006) on the relation between youth and ideology: Youth and the Global South: Religion, Politics and the Making of Youth in Africa, Asia and the Middle East. The volume includes two studies from Asia (India and Indonesia), and five from different countries in Africa (Uganda, Congo, Nigeria and Tanzania). The articles show how diverse the category of 'youth' is: youth in development (Sinha-Kerkhoff, Christiansen), in the nation (Semedi), within the complex chaos of war and violence (Jourdan and Sanni), as public performers in music and arts (Suriano) or as a schooling youth (Mokam). These categories are often defined from the outside, and then taken up by the youth who become actively involved in a re-definition in their own terms. Paradoxically, while youth is often excluded from the formulation of State or organizational ideologies that shape their lives, their self-ideologization is at the same time producing new modes of exclusion.
