The purpose of this paper is to explore the social dynamics confronting young people and social cohesion in the context of current youth population scenarios, focussing on a set of dimensions of social cohesion: (a) material conditions and inequality; (b) social order and safety; and; (c) political and civic participation, social capital and networks. It will look at those dimensions of social cohesion, which has the most significant impact on the social inclusion or exclusion of the post-apartheid generation of young people.
