Young People’s Leadership in Global Uprisings Since 2011

Youth-Led Recent Global Uprisings

Gayle Kimball, Ph.D.

Abstract: interviews and surveys with 4184 young people from 88 counties and interviews with youth activists, raised the obvious questions why and how were youth-led uprisings able to topple entrenched dictators and their violent security forces? This article addresses youth demography, why ageist scholars ignore youth activism, and asks why youth were able to mobilize large masses of contentious direct actions. Some of the answers are they’re brave because they don’t respect traditional authority, are influenced by global media and access to ICT. They value horizontal democracy that aligns with female socialization to be cooperative and focus on relationships. More input from youth is found in a trilogy of books in progress on global youth activism, the global girl revolution, and global youth culture. The author invites readers to critique chapters of interest via email. gkimball@csuchico.edu
