Modernity has been received in most developing economies with open arms despite a plethora of challenges that accompany it. Across the globe, it has been clearly proven that the majority of the challenges facing the youth originate from things related to globalisation. Some scholars have argued that globalisation has literally shocked the developing world to an extent whereby most local virtues have been discarded to the peripheries. This book therefore looks at the nexus between the youth across the developing world and the adoption of globalisation aspects. It seeks to understand how globalisation impacts on the youth vis-a-viz their levels of education.
The edited book seeks to explore the relationship between the youth cohort in most of the developing world and the globalisation. It therefore seeks to achieve the following; • Explore the nexus between the youth and globalisation systems • Assess the impact of the imposition and or adoption of some of the world systems on the youth in the developing world • Explain the influence of literacy on the way the youth receive modernity • Evaluate the effect of globalisation on the literate youth compared to the illiterate. • Map how education in the developing world could be designed to appropriately contain the potential shocks and negative effects on the recipients
The book targets to benefit the following audiences; • Social sciences and humanities’ oriented institutions • Youth in the developing world • Civil society organizations • Non-governmental organisations • Education practitioners
- Youth in the developing world
- Third world and globalisation
- Education in the third world
- Literacy and the youth
- Literacy and modernisation
- Abuse of the youth in the developing world
- Modernisation of education systems
- Harmonisation of world education and local systems
- Youth and Urbanisation unemployment and conflicts

Call for Chapter Proposals for Agenda for Social Justice Project 2020
Justice 21 Committee of the Society for the Study of Social Problems
Proposals Due May 1, 2019
Chapters Due September 1, 2019
The Society for the Study of Social Problems (SSSP) and the Justice 21 Committee has published five volumes of the Agenda for Social Justice. We are now beginning our work on the sixth iteration of the publication-- Agenda for Social Justice: Solutions 2020, which is designed to inform the public-at-large about America’s most pressing social problems and to propose public policy responses to those problems. This project affirms the commitment of the SSSP to social justice scholarship, and enables members of the SSSP to communicate publicly on significant social issues in the United States. This volume will be an “agenda for social justice,” in that it will contain recommendations for action nationwide by elected officials, policy makers, and the public.
The volume is to be published in paperback and electronic formats by Policy Press, an academic publisher affiliated with the University of Bristol, UK (http://www.policypress.co.uk/). The volume is a project in public sociology, and will cover important national-level social problems currently on the public agenda.
This volume will convey the most valid and reliable knowledge available about American social problems, and the Justice 21 Committee enthusiastically welcomes the collaboration of individual SSSP members and SSSP Divisions. Please consider preparing a chapter for the 2020 publication. We ask you, individually or with colleagues, to consider submitting a brief proposal (1-2 pages) identifying a significant social problem of concern to members of SSSP, and respond to the following items:
- Identify and define a concrete social problem of national scope.
- Clarify answers to these three questions:
- What do we know about the problem (i.e., what is the definition and extent of the problem)?
- How do we know this information (i.e., what are the sources of data about this problem)?
- What should be done, in terms of policy and social action to alleviate the problem (i.e., what are viable solutions for reducing, mitigating, solving, or abolishing the problem)?
As the Justice 21 Committee of the SSSP, we invite members to prepare draft statements for proposed contributions to the 2020 publication. Please submit a copy of your 1 to 2 page proposal via email to each of the members of the committee by May 1, 2019, and contact us if you have questions or would like additional information. Final contributions are limited to 3000 words (or roughly ten double-spaced manuscript pages). Chapter drafts will be due September 1, 2019, and final manuscripts will be due January 1, 2020. The volume will appear in print prior to the 2020 SSSP annual meetings in San Francisco.

Theme of the Special issue: Teaching Poverty in social work Classroom – Perspectives from Global South and Policy Implications
Guest Editors:Prof. GAO Jianguo (Department of Social Work, Shandong University Peoples Republic of China), Prof. Sajid S.M (Department of Social Work, Jamia Milia Islamia, New Delhi, India), Prof. Cheng Shengli (Department of Social Work, Shandong University Peoples Republic of China), Dr. Rajendra Baikady (Confucius Studies Understanding China Fellow (Post-Doc) Shandong University, Peoples Republic of China), Prof. Wang Yuxiang (College of Politics and Public Administration, Shandong Youth University of Political Science Peoples Republic of China)
The uniqueness of social work education across the globe is to equip the cadre of professionals to deal with the social issues and challenges from time to time. Every social order having diversity of population, culture, conditions and resources face challenges of inclusion-exclusion, inequalities, marginalization and injustice. The primary mission of social work profession is to work with the vulnerable, oppressed and marginalized population and help them to meet basic human needs. Owing to these principles throughout social work history there has been concern about social workers' commitment to the poor and to social action on their behalf. Social work has been coined as a “dissenting Profession” and social workers are considered to be the change agents with unique capabilities to deal with the social problems. In the present contemporary world there is a need to educate and train social work graduates to work with marginalized group affected by poverty across the borders. Perspective building of social work graduates in the classroom as well as in practice is essential as Student attitudes toward poverty are known to affect the way that they treat individuals who are likely to be poor. Social work education and the manner in which we currently teach poverty and inequality have important roles in increasing justice and economic equality and promoting peace and harmony. Further in a constantly changing world Social work educators are responsible for ensuring that future practitioners are culturally competent and have the ability to work effectively with people from different backgrounds. Social work education has an important role in the development of critical consciousness among students. This special issue invite contributions from the social work educators and researchers around the world focusing on issues mentioned below in relation to Global South.
Idea of this special issue is to provide a rare opportunity to the academics in the developing and emerging countries to highlight their experiences and views on teaching poverty in social work classroom. Poverty impacts every society irrespective of development status. In this context global south perspective would be learning from the poverty reduction intervention strategies in the economically less developed countries. Despite enormous effort by the state and non-state actors in poverty reduction in many south Asian countries, the result seems not very encouraging. As a result, poverty continues to be discussed, researched and written upon by the various academic disciplines. However, research evidence suggests that social work interventions to address poverty and its causative factors particularly at the macro level are confined largely to class room and seminar discussions. Huge gap between preaching and practice highlights professional inadequacies to deal with structural problems such as poverty and calls for a revisit to the scope and objectives of social work profession. Increasing dominance of market economies and neo-liberal discourse in the policy making and grass root effects in many of the South Asian countries, require a fresh look at the debates around poverty and the role of social work in its eradication or reduction. Hence we plan to critically look at various experiments both at the grass root levels and states’ efforts in this direction. This special issue of the journal aims at documenting these to facilitate learning from each other’s experiences in the global north and south and cull out the commonalities and unique aspects of poverty, policies and strategies to deal with it and implications of the same for social work education and practice.
Themes for the papers to be included in the special issue are:
a) Determining the scope of social work in different socio-political-economic and cultural contexts
b) Pedagogy for social work focusing on poverty
c) Teaching poverty in social work classroom
d) Skill development of social work graduates to work with poverty groups
e) Attitude of different stake holders on poverty
f) Knowledge building of social work graduates
g) Policies and programmes related to poverty in the global south
h) Best practices of poverty reduction
i) Lessons from the past interventions
j) Cross cultural Case studies
k) Indigenization of knowledge in poverty reduction
l) Field education and practicum in relation to poverty
m) Poverty in comparative perspective

Research in Social Movements, Conflicts and Change, a peer-reviewed volume published by Emerald Group Publishing, is inviting submissions for Volume 41 of the series. This RSMCC volume has a special focus on non-state actors and political conflicts but it will also attend to the broader themes of the series. Volume editor Julie Mazzei (Kent State University) welcomes submissions that fall within one of two areas: (1) research focused on the roles and motivations of non-state actors in conflicts or post-conflict situations in the post-Cold War era; or (2) research generally relevant to understanding the dynamics of social movements, conflicts, or change. We are particularly interested in research focusing on the motivations and interests of non-state violent actors (NSVAs) in the post-Cold War era; the role of identity and/or ideology in the conflicts or resolutions of so-called “new wars;” the impact of NSVAs in conflict and/or peace-making; and the ways in which IGOs and NGOs interact with NSVAs in conflicts or post-conflict zones. RSMCC boasts quick turn-around times, generally communicating peer review-informed decisions within 10-12 weeks.

The official journal of ASA’s Section for Racial and Ethnic Minorities, Sociology of Race and Ethnicity will publish the highest quality, cutting-edge sociological research on race and ethnicity regardless of epistemological, methodological, or theoretical orientation. While the study of race and ethnicity has derived from a broad and deep tradition of interdisciplinarity, sociology indeed has often been at the forefront of scholarly understanding of the dynamics of race and ethnicity; yet, there exists no journal in sociology devoted to bringing together this important theoretical, empirical, and critical work. Sociology of Race and Ethnicity will provide a fulcrum upon which sociologically-centered work will swing as it also seeks to provide new linkages between the discipline of sociology and other disciplines and areas where race and ethnicity are central components.
