Political Inclusion

Electoral Inclusion of Young Middle Class Internal Migrants in Urban India

Author : Avisek Bhattacharya | 2016
Published By: ACADEMIA

This thesis project looks at the issue of low electoral participation among Indian middle class urban youth through an uncommon, overlooked spectacle of internal migration which affects more eligible citizens in number than emigration. After a detailed analysis of existing formal knowledge on youth political participation and exclusion resulting from internal migration in India, the thesis throws light on the importance of including youth in decision-making due to the country’s ongoing demographic dividend.
