Book Description:
Youth Transition in a Globalized Marketplace (YTGM) is based on the experiences of youth in a number of countries. The authors of this study are internationally recognised as leaders in the field of youth research. It deals with the increasingly complex question of youth transition. As Miles observes: “… a key term in developing any adequate understanding of young people’s lifestyles is that of ‘transition’, the process by which young people somehow manage to reach ‘adulthood’.” Galland proposes a model called the ‘crossing of thresholds’ that define the pattern and progress of transition to adulthood.” He suggests four centrally important thresholds that define the pattern and progress of transition to adulthood. These he defines as completing education/training, entry to employment, leaving home and forming a couple.
This book is primarily concerned with the first two, completing education/training and entry to employment. It is a book that looks at a number of countries and their approaches to a complex set of problems that have become increasingly global. The case studies focus on and problematize pertinent youth transition issues in a range of countries, and they present the theoretical complexities of globalization and youth in a rapidly changing world. It becomes increasingly evident that while not all countries share the same solutions to problems of transition, many of the problems encountered by individual countries in this study are global in nature.
