This article, coauthored by scholars from the Global South and North, argues in favor of North–South dialogue within the field of youth leaving out of home care but highlights several challenges inherent in this, including the indigenizing and thus marginalizing of African experience and scholarship and divergent constructions of key social concepts. The authors argue the need for mutually respectful discourse between North and South and present specific recommendations for fostering such global dialogue.
