Abstract [en]

This paper discusses examples of how youth negotiate uncertainties in their life situations. The examples are based on field notes collected during an ethnographic fieldwork conducted in the Sidama zone, in Southern Nations, Nationalities and People’s Regional State, Ethiopia, in 2010, and between 2013 and 2014. During these periods I was able to follow some people’s life over time. Based on the stories they provided, I was able to learn about the concerns in their everyday life, but also about strategies for resolution of uncertainties and predictability.
