The end of the Second World War saw an increase in the number of intra state conflicts, and along with it came a host of fascinating question that sought to provide explanations for such conflicts. With many countries receiving independence from the colonial rule, there arose with it problems that soon turned into violent conflicts, insurgent movements with demands for secessionism and self – determination. In this book, an interesting argument is brought to the reader that could also help in idea of youth which has received much interest among research scholars, policy makers and activists. Understanding conflict and how conflict affects peace are question this book seeks to answer. In this context, the book brings an interesting argument of why youth engage in conflict and puts forward the binary of greed and grievances as reasons for their participation in armed violence. The book further takes the case of north east India as a example where the participation of youth in conflict has been present and how conflict has affected peace in the region. Finally the book puts forward an interesting argument that if youth are engaged in peace building process in north east India, there could emerge a lasting peace in the region.
