Book launch: Stuck in the Margins?
You are cordially invited to the virtual book launch of 'Stuck in the Margins? Young people and faith-based organisations in South African and Nordic localities' by Ignatius Swart, Auli Vähäkangas, Marlize Rabe and Annette Leis-Peters.

This book represents the first major international scholarly endeavour to explore the contemporary phenomenon of youth marginalisation from a focused interdisciplinary faith-based organisational perspective. This is done through combining the interrelated fields of ‘religion and development’ and ‘religion and social welfare’ with ‘international youth studies’.

At the centre of the discussions are the views and experiences of young people from different localities in South Africa, Finland and Norway. The result is a scholarly work that is both appreciative as well as critical of the involvement of faith-based organisations in the lives of marginalised youths, but also of the research enterprise itself.

Date: 3 February 2022
