Under the current dispensation of donor funding, relief programmes and international aid, these discussions have made the ‘youth’ the major beneficiary of what these policies offer and imply. There is a general feeling, however, that these policies should target all age groups in their youth-oriented programmes. If the donorideology prescribes youthfulness for societal and developmental relevance, it will then dictate practice. This is just one example of what this special issue will address in an attempt to explore what we see as an emerging development in Africa and beyond: the rise of youth as an ideology. Whereas Africa has witnessed the rise of a fast-growing study of youth as a phenomenon and as a concept, the aspect of youth as ideology has, so far, not been elaborated on.</dcterms:abstract> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2019-08-28T09:34:20Z</dcterms:available> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Cardoso, Carlos</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Cardoso, Carlos</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>van Dijk, Rijk</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Butter, Inge</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:title>Introduction: Ideologies of Youth</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>van Dijk, Rijk</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2011</dcterms:issued> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>de Bruijn, Mirjam</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>de Bruijn, Mirjam</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
