Debates about ‘security’ rarely feature children or younger people; research with children and young people seldom focuses upon issues traditionally found within security studies. Building upon longstanding debates about political geographies of youth and political participation as well as feminist geopolitics and emerging discussions about children’s and young people’s geopolitics, we chart young people’s everyday landscapes of security and insecurity. Key themes explored here include: secure pasts and insecure futures; ontological security and insecure selves; online security and digital insecurities; home(land) securities and insecure households and families; andglobal securities and insecure worlds.
