YUVA (India)

democracy

The need to institute a centre emerged from YUVA’s own analysis of the environment and its changing context, especially with liberalization, privatization and globalization. To deepen democracy, it is imperative that the state, market and civil society interact with each other in a responsible, accountable and mature manner. Democracy truly gets “deepened”, when it gets imbibed into the attitudes, norms, culture, behaviour and relationships of every individual and group. The needs of the weakest are met when the democratic values imbibed compel us to value each individual and his/her well-being.
