restricted access Youth and Electoral Revolutions in Slovakia, Serbia, and Georgia
Abstract

Since 1998, young people have played important roles in the electoral revolutions that deposed semi-authoritarian leaders in Slovakia, Serbia, and Georgia. This article examines common and disparate elements of young people's roles in these three cases. Youth were involved in an important way in all three. However, the extent of their involvement, the forms it took, and the relationship between youth and other actors in this process differed to some degree in the three cases. Young people became involved in politics in somewhat different ways. The paths young activists have taken after the revolutions have also differed to some degree.
