The Ferment
: Youth Unrest 
in India

01 December 2018

Nikhila Henry

With thousands of young people engaged in political action throughout the country, youth unrest is a defining feature of the current political climate in India. The journalist Nikhila Henry attempts to engage with these protests and determine why so many young activists are being labelled as traitorous and persecuted by the state. She argues that such activism is not an aggregation of localised protests but an organised effort by the largest cohort of young people in the world to reform the deeply flawed democracy they are a part of.
