Outline India undertook a study of the core values and concerns of the urban Indian youth specifically pertaining to political processes, leadership, education and employment policies. 

Additionally, the study focused on how international policies and global agendas emerged in the political discourse, focusing on how these inform ideas of socio-political responsibilities for Indian youth. A mixed method study, the project included a social media campaign across nine cities and qualitative field work, with focus group discussions and in-depth interviews in Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Kolkata and Mumbai. The study helped map possible avenues of synergy between India and UK in the context of the youth population.
