About the Book

Youth bulge can be a challenge because it can lead to conflict and violence. It can also work as an opportunity, depending on the size and trajectory of the bulge and on a society’s reaction to it. This anthology lays out the underlying framework of youth bulges and discusses the ways in which such a demographic phenomenon can work to the advantage or disadvantage of a society. This book identifies key transitions experienced by youth and examines their perceptions and attitudes regarding the experiences in violent conflict situations in Kashmir and the possible role of the youth to improve collective understanding and capacity to work for peace and development.
