National Research Council, Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education, Committee on Population, Panel on Transitions to Adulthood in Developing Countries
National Academies Press, Jan 8, 2006 - Social Science - 506 pages
Serving as a companion to Growing Up Global, this book from the National Research Council explores how the transition to adulthood is changing in developing countries in light of globalization and what the implications of these changes might be for those responsible for designing youth policies and programs. Presenting a detailed series of studies, this volume both complements its precursor and makes for a useful contribution in its own right. It should be of significant interest to scholars, leaders of civil society, and those charged with designing youth policies and programs.
