Abstract:
Scholars have found that since 1970s countries with a large proportion of working age population have less chances of maintaining their democratic gains. Cincotta (2008) and many others argue that a country's chances of meaningful democracy increase as its population matures. This is because when a high percentage of adolescent population enters the workforce it leads to increased unemployment, which in turn, affects political stability of the country. Further, these unemployed youths become a hot pursuit for rebel groups, as they are easy to mobilize and recruit. Hence, the likelihood of internal disorder increases which threatens democratic functioning of the country.
