Around 80 percent of South Sudan’s working-age youth are unemployed or underemployed, and many have joined the conflict. Loyola-Marymount University’s professor of African Studies, Jok Madut Jok.explains: “Why do all these unemployed youths flock to the conflict? They join because they have nothing to lose because corruption has not allowed resources to trickle down” to create jobs for them and give them a future, he told IRIN. Photo: Jason Patinkin/IRIN
