Obediah Dodo, PhD, Bindura University of Science Educatio and Zimbabwe Vincent Mabvurira, Ph.D, University of Zimbabwe, Zimbabwe
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

Organization Science Special Issue on “Experiments in Organizational Theory”
Special Issue Editors: Oliver Schilke, Sheen S. Levine, Olenka Kacperczyk, and Lynne G. Zucker
Submission Window: August 1–September 15, 2019
We aim to expand organizational theorists’ methodological repertoire with experiments, whether in the laboratory or the field, alone or in combination with other methods. Among their many benefits, experiments excel in identifying causality. They’ve been advocated since the inception of the field, and even more so in recent years. This Special Issue answers this call.

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. For more information, please visit the RSMCC website:http://www.emeraldinsight.com/products/books/series.htm?id=0163-786X
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.
