The 2006 Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) in Nepal was one of the most significant peace accords of recent decades. Yet despite important achievements Nepal’s post-agreement transition has been difficult, as stability in the country remains vulnerable and peace dividends are felt unevenly. A longstanding failure to agree a new constitution has undermined progress for peace. Devastating earthquakes in April and May 2015 brought appaling human suffering and exposed social and political tensions. This Accord project will learn from, and contribute to, practical efforts to advance peace and transition in Nepal.
