Glimpsing the Complexity of Youth and Political Violence

Glimpsing the Complexity of Youth and Political Violence

(p.3) Chapter 1 Glimpsing the Complexity of Youth and Political Violence
Adolescents and War

Brian K. Barber

Oxford University Press

This chapter reviews many of the central issues of concern related to youth and their experiences with political violence, and calls for expanding the scope of inquiry in order to better capture the intricacy of youth experience with political conflict. The evaluation includes coverage of both sides of the equation: assessment of both the experience with conflict and the breadth of indices of youth functioning thought to be impacted by their experiences with political violence. It discusses issues of mediation and moderation of the impact of conflict, and wrestles with how to juxtapose the evidence of both negative and positive elements of functioning in conflict youth populations. Additionally, the chapter positions subsequent chapters in the book as evidence of how to approach the intricate and complex study of these youths.

Keywords:   youth, adolescents, war, political violence, competent functioning, resilience, coping, trauma, complexity
