Ten years on from the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement in Nepal that ended a decade-long civil war, Conciliation Resources’ new Accord publication examines the country’s peace process. Two steps forward, one step back: Nepal’s peace process focuses on the progress of inclusion and the function of power in Nepal’s peace process, and how peace and political negotiations in various forms have tried to support transition from a negative to a positive peace.
With over 30 articles and interviews by Nepali and international experts, practitioners, activists and ex-combatants, the publication explores three core themes – the peace process itself, the political process and inclusion. There is also an additional analysis of the political repercussions of the 2015 earthquakes.
