This essay examines how millennials are shaping democracy in East Asia, drawing from the third wave of the Asia Barometer Survey (2010-2013). The essay looks at how millennials engage and participate in politics, their support for democracy and conceptualization of democracy and compares these factors to older cohorts. The findings show that millennials do participate and support democracy, but do so in paradoxical ways that differ from older generations in East Asia.
