Series Education and society in South Asia
Summary This text aims to scrutinize some of the conceptual ideas that underlie prevalent visions of youth as agents of social change and as a source of hope for a better future. As a part of the 'Education and Society in South Asia' series, it provides insightful accounts of students' daily routines on and around a public university campus in Kathmandu, Nepal, and calls attention to a group of non-elite university students who have remained less visible in scholarly and public debates about student activism, youth unemployment, and international migration. By placing different strands of literature on youth, aspiration, and mobility into conversation, 'In Search of a Future' unveils new and important perspectives on how young people navigate competing social expectations, educational inequalities, and limited job prospects
