In the wake of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in sub-Saharan Africa, a ‘crisis of childhood’ has been presented, the result of a complex interplay between globalised notions of childhood, the international media, development policy, and donor agendas. This chapter draws on a generational study of childhood in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, and critically reflects upon these discourses, interrogating the taken-for-granted assumptions and definitions that have underpinned policy rationales and programmes.
