Abstract:This ethnographic study explores the social genesis of war and peace in Burundi. The topic is approached through a focus on everyday practices of classification and identification among youths on the northern periphery of Bujumbura. The study reveals the ways in which male and female youths grapple with insecurities and uncertain prospects concerning violence and exclusion that characterize Burundi in the aftermath of the civil war. Therewith, the study gives insight into purposive action in indeterminate contexts and illuminates the agency of 'ordinary people' - here, youths - in reinventing peace.
