Abstract: Uma releitura crítica da produ o da sociologia funcionalista sobre a juventude revela concep es fundadas na idéia da normalidade, tida como a adequa o tranqüila entre a condi o juvenil e a estrutura social. A anormalidade é aí interpretada como disfun es, originadas da perniciosa influência de “tradi es ocultas” sobre a juventude: boemia, delinqüência e radicalismo. Nos anos 1960, reconsidera-se tal interpreta o, e uma vis o mais generosa sobre as revoltas juvenis permite vê-las até mesmo como possibilidade de reforma e revolu o das sociedades em crise, a partir de pensadores sociais progressistas com argumentos fundados nos ideais de transforma o social e cidadania, dando origem à tese da moratória social. Palavras-chave: Juventude. Sociologia da Juventude. Funcionalismo. Moratória social. Condi o juvenil. Rebeldias juvenis.

The “abnormality” is interpreted as “dysfunctions” originated from the pernicious influence of “secret traditions” about the youth: bohemia, delinquency and radicalism. In the 1960’s, such interpretation is again considered, and a more generous view about the youth rebellions allows us to see them even as a possibility of reform and revolution of societies in crises, all through social progressive thinkers with arguments base don ideals of social transformation and citizenship, originating the thesis of the social moratorium. Keywords: Youth Sociology. Functionalism. Social moratorium. Youth condition. Youth rebelliousness.

Abstract: Parents, neighbourhood and peers play a powerful predictor in the life of youth. They not only shape the personality, promote their education, career and family life but also prevent them from disruptive behaviours. The perceived social support system of parents, neighbourhood elders and peer group is measured in this descriptive study from the rural youth selected through systematic random sampling method. Parental and other adults and peer group support system are perceived at a higher level. It has been observed that younger the age; higher the perceived support to youth and support does not vary among the various religious groups but difference is found in caste. Higher the education higher the perceived parental and other adults support. The nuclear family and small family perceive better parental and family support. Only one third are getting high support from their neighbourhood adults. Majority of rural youth depend on their peer members for personal matters; but when it comes to money related consultancy they depend on parents. Similarly, majority of youth consult on risk behaviour such as drugs and alcohol with peer members than their father, mother, adults, leaders and educationist. Youth, for important and crucial issues; consult peers rather than parents and other adults, is observed as a gap. Better social structure, awareness and strengthen family relationship and for which the role of Government and NGO's are suggested.

It was observed that in the rural areas recently, youths indulge in drug taking and other anti-social acts. Many of them are dropout from schools. The rural libraries could play big roles by reverting them to skillful living again that is by equipping the libraries with information resources that would interest the youths and attract them back to complete their education. A questionnaire titled “Using the rural library for youth development” was constructed and distributed among the youths and librarians in five (5) villages that have rural libraries. 300 copies of questionnaire was made and distributed. 235 respondents were gotten. The response rate became 78%. Findings were made.

Abstract: The study examined the effects of youth restiveness and militancy in the development of the rural areas in Rivers State. Data obtained from 100 randomly sampled respondents in two local government areas were analyzed using descriptive statistics. The study revealed poverty (87.7%), unemployment (88%), use of youths for election purposes by politicians (69.4%) and cultism (60%) were the main causes of militancy and youth restiveness in the study area. The effects of this in rural development were, the abandonment of projects meant to help the rural people (M=2.80), insecurity (M=2.70), migration (M=2.70), cultural and social distortion (M=2.80) and high cost of project execution (M=2.65). Government and non-governmental agencies have intervened by providing skill acquisition programmes (70%), amnesty programme (60%) and providing military presence (80%) to arrest the situation. The factors militating against government and non-governmental agencies efforts were corruption (77%), its being a source of revenue for some (76%) and insincerity on the part of government (56%). It is therefore recommended that the faithfulness of government in the affairs of things would go a long way in bringing peace and security to the region for an enabling environment that would enhance rural growth.

Abstract: Developing the rural community is one of the main government agendas. One of the methods used by the government to develop the rural community is by ensuring continuous delivery of information. In tandem with this, many high impact projects for the rural community have been introduced particularly on ICT. Nonetheless, besides ICT, the government also has rural library to rely on. In a number of local and international studies, rural library has been proven to benefit the rural community. The main query of this study is to identify the impingement factors of the rural library usage among rural youth and the findings obtained are expected to contribute to the existing literatures. Using a qualitative method, focus group discussions (FGDs) have been carried out among two groups, one of the FGDs was conducted with six librarians and another FGD was conducted among six rural library users. The FGDs were conducted in Kuala Terengganu, Terengganu, Malaysia. Data gained were later transcribed verbatim and analysed. Based on the analysis done, a total of eight main factors that can impinge their usage of rural library services have been identified. In order to further enhance the usage of rural library services among youth, this study suggests that issues such as relevant sources and activities, youth involvement in the planning process, a better way of promotion and roles of librarians should be highly considered.

Abstract: Young people learn more about sexual and reproductive health from uninformed sources and in our Indian culture, talking about sex and related issues are considered as taboo. Consequently, little information is provided to adolescents and youth about sexual health which resulted in risky sexual behaviour. In India, one-half of all young women are observed to be sexually active by the time they are 18 years. With the advent of mass media, internet, mobile phone and electronic communication gadgets; the health/ sex behaviour of youth undergo enormous changes. With this back drop, this study was carried out to assess the perceived sexual norms, perceived self behaviour of youth on birth control & protected sex, and perceived sexual involvement of peer youth. The findings revealed that though majority of the youth uphold the value system and have higher level of sexual norms in terms of perceived knowledge on general youth; the self perceived behaviour showed a negative and dangerous trend as most of them would not adopt birth control and protected sex measures; if happened to have premarital sex. Similarly the overall youth perception on sexual involvement of peer members in the villages observed that considerable percent of both boys and girls have sexual relationship which attracted the need for sexual health education and warrants an integrated comprehensive package of behaviour modification for the rural youth.
