Youth Agenda for India

Friedrich Ebert Stiftung India Office

 

Two-third of the population of India is under the age of 25. According to estimates of experts, by 2025 this demographic dividend is likely to increase manifolds in the age group of 15-59. With growing pool of fresh labour, India has the potential to steer the world in the economic and political arena.


In general, the youth of today is branded as an ardent consumer of global phenomena and a victim of political insensitivity. Many a scholar would feel that a generation so absorbed in materialistic environment 

would hardly qualify to become the “demographic dividend” for this country. If we look at the conventional structures for youth participation, we realise that not much is on offer. In certain regions where the 73rd and 74th Constitutional Amendments have been effectively implemented, young people's participation has also increased. Although, due to lack of democratic structures within the political parties and strong nepotism, access to this arena is a big challenge. Even the outlook of the present political leadership is not very encouraging, rendering the youth alienated and disillusioned.
