Growing Up in Surabaya: Youth, Street Gangs, the City, and Beyond

Part of the Critical Studies in Gender, Sexuality, and Culture book series (CSGSC)


This chapter investigates the nature of youth street gangs in Surabaya, their transition to organized crime, and their relationship with urban spaces. It discusses personal growth, the quest for social integration, and movement, with a focus on how particular channels facilitate, organize, and constrain movement, and how circuits of human mobility are configured for a particular group of people, to particular ends in particular places at a particular historical conjuncture (Freeman 2001; Lindquist 2009; Tsing 2000).
