The crisis of political participation among young people depends upon the refusal to register in electoral regulations and vote in elections, it goes beyond not being involved in political parties, it ends with the use of non-institutional methods, such as protest, demonstration, and interrupting goods, rather than reaching out to government officials, and in this regard, the October demonstrations marked a milestone, with youth as its main base.

The purpose of this paper is to describe and measure the state of political knowledge among Iraqi youth, and the extent to which it affects their level of participation? Does increased political knowledge lead to increased political participation?

The present paper will adopt a methodology based on a survey study in Baghdad province, as the political capital and largest constituency, political actors (parties and protest movements) focus their activities.
