To day, I’ll show you video Why Are Young People Joining ISIS? | Apurv Gupta | TEDxJaiHindCollege

In his pursuit of uncovering the strategy behind ISIS youth recruitment, Apurv Gupta moves beyond theological connotations and enters the realm of psychological explanations. He paints a vivid picture of how choices made by these young recruits go entirely against any wishful thinking they may harbour due to the very nature of underground organisations.

Mr. Apurv Gupta who is currently a student of International Relations and Law in the University of Edinburgh is a Youth Representative to the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Council. He has held honourable positions of responsibilities in the United Nations Association of the United Kingdom and Ireland and has served as the Vice President of UNICEF UK “on campus” branch. Apart from being the founder of the United Nations Association Youth Group in Edinburgh.
Apurv has also been a part of the very prestigious G-20 Youth Summit as the Head of the Republic of India. Currently interning with the Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India, Apurv is also the recipient of several premier scholarships and honors both at school and university level which has eventually culminated in him working with and for affected communities in countries like Australia, Peru, Thailand, India and the United Kingdom.
