Abstract : Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris
Artikel ini mengkaji aktivisme politik belia di Malaysia berdasarkan kepada beberapa indikator demografi seperti umur, jantina, dikotomi bandar dan luar bandar, serta tahap pendidikan. Perbincangan ini penting untuk menganalisis sama ada golongan belia di Malaysia adalah lebih aktif dalam aktiviti politik berbanding dengan golongan tua. Dengan menggunakan data soal selidik dari Asian Barometer Wave 2 (2005-2008) dan Wave 3 (2010-2012), dapatan kajian menunjukkan corak penglibatan politik golongan belia Malaysia adalah sama seperti hasil kajian literatur di Barat, khususnya di Amerika dan Britain iaitu golongan belia kurang melibatkan diri dalam politik konvensional, terutamanya mengundi dan menjadi ahli parti politik berbanding dengan golongan tua. Walaupun peratusan golongan belia di Malaysia yang menyertai aktiviti ‘Menandatangani Petisyen’ adalah tinggi dan signifikan berbanding dengan golongan tua, namun ianya hanya berlaku dalam Wave 2. Selain itu, kajian ini juga mendapati bahawa indikator demografi seperti pendidikan, jantina dan dikotomi bandar-luar bandar tidak mempengaruhi dan tidak mengecilkan jurang umur di antara golongan belia dan golongan tua dalam aktivisme politik. Oleh itu, secara keseluruhannya, golongan belia di Malaysia adalah apati kepada politik kerana mereka tidak bergiat aktif dalam aktiviti politik konvensional dan bukan konvensional berbanding dengan golongan tua
