NEW PUBLICATION – ‘Youthscapes’ of Development in the Caribbean and Latin America

We are very excited that 50/50 Youth’s first collection of research papers is now off the press! The Special Issue of the SALISES journal Social and Economic Studies (SES) presents eight contributions from members and associates of the cluster.

The SES Special Issue on Youth has a modified back cover featuring e-graffiti by Lerato Hodge of Guyana. The words "Youth Inclusive" reflect what 50/50 Youth is about and the objectives of our research.
