India’s Youth – Speak Out About Higher Education

Between April and September 2015, UNESCO Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Education for Peace and Sustainable Development (MGIEP) conducted a mixed methods study designed to solicit the opinions of Indian nationals between the ages of 17 and 29 about revising the higher education portion of the National Education Policy (NEP). The exercise supported the Ministry of Human Resource Development’s (MHRD) bottom-up approach, which involved gathering input from stakeholders from diverse fields, regions, and backgrounds as a key element of the redrafting process. To this end, UNESCO MGIEP administered an online survey that reached 6017 young people from every state, and conducted 34 focus groups in 5 regions of India involving 331 young people from a range of rural, semi-urban, and urban centres.
