Event Description

The Alliance for Peacebuilding, 3P Human Security, and The Asia Foundation invite practitioners and experts on Nepal to a roundtable with an open dialogue to identify the key factors needed to solidify lasting peace in Nepal. 


Many challenges remain on Nepal’s path to peace and stability since the signing of the peace agreement in 2006. The success of the political process, strengthening the rule of law and access to justice, equitable economic development, and human security for vulnerable communities are among the critical issues that will determine Nepal’s future.  Individuals and institutions both in Nepal and abroad are working to ensure that Nepali society consolidates a long-term peace by addressing the root drivers of instability. 


The aim of this meeting is to:

  • Generate a cross-sector analysis, bringing together academics, officials, civil society organizations and other stakeholders to understand the challenges in Nepal.
  • Provide perspectives from the field with Nepali scholar and peacebuilder Hari Bansh Jha, author of Peacebuilding in Nepal.
  • Identify and discuss the crucial areas that must be addressed for Nepal to move forward on a path toward sustainable peace.
