Getting in and getting on in the youth labour market: Governing young people’s employability in regional context by Pauline Leonard and Rachel Wilde
Global youth migration and gendered modalities by Glenda Time Bonifacio,
The volumes discussed in this review take up inquiries into young people’s education, work, and mobility. They are both welcome engagements that create analytical arcs that connect examinations of discursive practices and lived experiences through policymaking and social change initiatives and historical investigations to contemporary analysis. Their authors draw multiple lines of connection and continuity between the inter-discipline of youth studies, disciplinary and other interdisciplinary fields that currently orient themselves toward examinations of young people’s lives under conditions of socioeconomic restructuring and economic uncertainty at local, regional, transnational or global scale.
