Generation Y, born between 1978 and 2000, is now ready to affect their general surroundings. And that not only involves social rather other aspects such as business and in particular politics. The recent research on generation Y shows an increasing emphasis on a unique behavioral manifestation of political activism in generation Y which is not limited to a specific ethnic, social or cultural class rather has been observed all over the world. This research, therefore, establishes the proposition that political activism among generation Y is a global phenomenon. Taking the critical realist ontological stance, this research substantiate the recent empirical evidences from Malaysia, Pakistan, Hong Kong, Turkey, USA, Quebec, UK, and Chile to analyze its proposition. The research concludes that its proposition is valid; therefore, further research using different scientific methods must be conducted for further breadth and rigor of this area of knowledge.
