Nepal's New Constitution: A Beginning, Not an End, to the Struggle for Equality

01 Apr 2023  |  thediplomat.com
The article discusses the political unrest in Nepal following the adoption of a new constitution in September, which was meant to be a celebratory milestone but has instead led to protests and economic damage, particularly in the Terai region. The author argues that the failure to address war crimes and abuses of power risks the country's future as an equal post-conflict state. The article compares Nepal's situation with Sri Lanka's post-conflict reconciliation process, which has been criticized for failing to address wartime abuses and foster unity. The author emphasizes the importance of reconciliation through understanding, apologies, and forgiveness, and suggests that Nepal's new constitution should be a tool for change and inclusion, not an end goal in itself.

Following the major earthquake that struck Nepal in April 2015 I investigate the existence of disaster inflation and the threats this could pose Nepal in its recovery and quest for stability.

The Plight of Tibetan Refugees in Nepal

30 Nov 2015  |  Tibet post International
The article discusses the historical and cultural ties between Nepal and Tibet, emphasizing the impact of Tibetan culture in Nepal. It highlights the plight of Tibetan refugees who have sought asylum in Nepal since the Chinese invasion of Tibet in 1959. The refugees face increasing hostility and legal challenges in Nepal, with their rights to work, own property, and protest severely restricted. The author notes that Nepal has not signed the 1951 Refugee Convention but has other international legal obligations that should protect the refugees from being forcibly returned to China. The article criticizes the Nepali government for not prioritizing the refugees' situation and suggests that allowing them documentation would enable them to become self-sufficient, benefiting both the refugees and Nepal.

Nepal’s Constitution Crisis: The Struggle for Representation and Rights

30 Nov 2015  |  East Asia Forum
The article by Maximillian Mørch discusses the political and humanitarian crisis in Nepal following the promulgation of a new constitution in September 2015. The constitution has been controversial, especially among the Madhesi communities in the Terai plains, who feel it undermines their political representation and allows for continued discrimination. The Madhesi protests have led to violence, including over 50 deaths and nearly 1000 injuries. The situation has been exacerbated by an Indian border blockade, causing significant economic losses. Both security forces and protesters have been accused of human rights abuses, as reported by the NHRC and Human Rights Watch. The government and protest leaders are urged to de-escalate tensions and address the grievances to prevent further deterioration of human rights and to aid in Nepal's recovery from the April earthquake.
