    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    This study is a contribution to the growing body of literature discussing youth and the state in Africa and beyond. This research monograph understands »youth« as a process mirrored in the meandering life trajectories of young people who explore various avenues to social status and adulthood. Inevitably, these trajectories are intermingled with the socio-political context of a Guinean state still in the making. Hence, »Youth and the State in Guinea: Meandering Lives« aims at an history-sensitive analysis of youth-state relations representing a fruitful lens not only to depict youthful agency but also to draw a nuanced picture of political changes and continuities in post-colonial Guinea.
