marginalized groups such as refugees, are currently being developed at national level, but discontinuities in these policies sometimes lead to interruptions in schooling. The public sector is facing strong competition from the private one, even more so at secondary-school level than at primary-school level. In spite of universal education policies, some children and adolescents still do not have access to good-quality education. In a recent development, public policies on young people are now starting to emerge Children’s and young people’s rights and policies, repression and legal aid, political mobilization and demobilization The increased awareness of children’s rights and youth justice has been accompanied by the introduction of new policies and practices, sometimes with mixed results. Studying the progress made so far, as well as the persistent problems (e.g. genital mutilation, minimum age for marriage), raises the issues of customary laws and historical legacies, including the colonial legacies of hygienism and the criminalization of delinquents. Adopting a political science approach would make it easier to pinpoint local variations and obstacles to public policies concerning young people. Which mediation and political demobilization mechanisms have arisen from the new forms of socialization, nation-building, reconciliation networks, and so forth? Have we seen a move away from the public socialization modes introduced in the wake of independence, compounded by the demographic and anthropological changes that have taken place in all the countries in the region?

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
