Youth - Future Agents of Change or Guardians of Establishment

Published on


This issue of “Panorama-Insights into Asian and European Affairs” is concerned with the engagement of young people in political processes and society. In Europe, but also in Asia, young people get more actively involved in politics, demand for changes and try to shape the society. The Arab spring, which was strongly driven by young people, is a good example of how the youth can be an agent of change. The articles demonstrate the role the youth plays in Asian and European countries, arguing that young people are key players and that their demands have to be taken seriously by the establishment.
