This open access edited collection explores obstacles that impede, and potential pathways toward improving, the material and psychological well-being of youth in and from West Africa. Contributors range from researchers to practitioners, offering a transatlantic, transcontinental set of perspectives on the mounting evidence that, whether they reside in poor "underdeveloped" or wealthier (OECD) countries, young people who live in poverty and are African-born or of African descent are disproportionately burdened by the global phenomenon of increasing income inequality.
Mora McLean is Co-Adjutant in the Office of the Chancellor and Office of Globally Engaged Experiential Learning at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, USA.
