With this essay, we set the stage for a discussion about young people and borders that is local in its context and global in its implications. Young people's bounded, bordered and embodied contexts are framed by issues of exclusion and inclusion where identity and development are negotiated, acquiesced, moved and migrated. We offer insight into the literal and metaphorically bordered lives of young people and the revolutionary imaginations that transcend those borders.
