A right bank tributary of the Niger River, the Mekrou, has formed a strongly incised river bed within clayey to sandy alluvium, locally interrupted by thin layers of gravel and coarser deposits. The alluvia give evidence to different climatic conditions: finer material was accumulated during flooding within a humid period, whereas the arid times seem to be reflected by coarser sediments. The cyclic facies change of sedimentation gives evidence for a repeated shilft in climate and hydrologic conditions, assuming that the alluvia originate in the upper Pleistocene. Some human artefacts are associated to the different gravel layers (subjacent bed = Palaeolithic, intermediate bed = middle Palaeolithic, overlying bed = ‘‘recent’’ Palaeolithic, Neolithic, and iron Metallurgy). The absence of terraces, the occurrence of sandy sediments on the border of the river bed indicates to active morphodynamic processes; some angularly shaped meanders give evidence for a rapid change of drainage and leads to the hypothesis of a modified flow-off by the river’’s recent capture.

Youth and Globalization is an academic forum for discussion and exchanges, a space for intellectual creativity on all questions relating to youth in a globalizing world. Its aim is to provide an innovative understanding of youth studies in a global context based on multiscalar (both local and global), multilevel (economic, political, social), transnational, and multidisciplinary approaches.

Drawing on both theoretical and empirical research, and in addition to and as a complement of the Brill book series Youth in a Globalizing World, the journal explores how young people relate to globality and its outcomes.

Globalization is an economic phenomenon, linked to the domination of an increasingly financialized capitalism. Is has also an important cultural dimension, due to increasing mobility of cultural goods, global icons, imaginaries, global technoscapes, migration, and diasporas. On a political level, national and international policies affect the ways in which young people relate to the world, from educational programs (e.g., teaching foreign languages, with mobility as part of education, as in the Erasmus program, etc.) to job markets to leisure activities.

Young people both are affected by and are the actors of the globalization of everyday life. Mobility (travel, migration, education), multicultural backgrounds, relations to educational and job markets, demands for leisure recognition, transformation of families and of childhood and youth, and the proliferation and development of youth cultures are among the changing factors that Youth and Globalization investigates.

Consequently, the journal invites scholars to address such questions as:
• Are we witnessing the globalization, the localization, or the hybridization of the conditions of youth?
• How do young people, even in an ephemeral way, experience cultures that were once considered exotic or peripheral?
• What are the links between transnational economics, political and institutional structures, transnational processes of flexibility at work and change in welfare state regimes, and the transition to adulthood?
• What about the sense of local belonging in a supposedly global age? What conceptions of democracy and human rights are held, shared, and performed by young people in a global context?
• What is the downside of the normative injunctions, widespread among younger generations in Western societies, to be open-minded and curious?
And how do young people cope with this pressure?

Youth and Globalization invites contributions from scholars and advanced researchers that promote dialog in a way that resonates with academics, practitioners, policy-makers, and students as well as the general reader. The journal publishes peer-reviewed articles (8,000-9,000 words), book reviews (up to 1,200 words), and interviews/conversations (not to exceed 2,500 words). Submissions should conform to the Instructions for Authors, available below as a downloadable PDF.
