0 State of the Urban Youth, India 2013
The State of the Urban Youth India 2013: Employment, Livelihoods, Skills produced by IRIS Knowledge Foundation, Mumbai on a commission from the UN-Habitat Global Urban Youth Research Network of which it is part, is a first attempt to pull together a data and knowledge base on and of youth in urban India. With commissioned chapters from a number of scholars, the focus of the Report is youth employment and livelihoods in urban India.
