Global Youth Culture

The continued growth of the Internet throughout Asia, Latin America, and Europe, as well as in parts of Africa, means that material on the global Internet will continue to become more diverse. Still, the hundreds of millions of global youth who live in abject poverty, who fight in wars, and who continue to be forced into slavery must serve as reminders that theories of global youth culture that overly celebrate its urbanity, cosmopolitanism, and mediated qualities can be misleading and not applicable to the cultural experiences of the downtrodden whose “youth” itself has become a political question.
