Ending the Age of the Marginal Majority An Exploration of Strategies to Overcome Youth Exclusion, Vulnerability and Violence in Southern Africa

This research is a starting point for understanding youth violence regionally. What became clear in the research process was the complexity of youth violence, particularly when a holistic approach is taken to the issues that underpin its manifestation. Rather than providing quick answers about what might provide the most appropriate programming or policy interventions, the research uncovered a range of debates and issues that need to be taken into consideration in designing policy and programme initiatives in respect of youth violence.
