Please feel free to provide a short bio about yourself or the work of your organization (no more than 3 paragraphs)
After doing my graduation in India, i returned to Nepal and started to work at NDI (National Democratic Institute for International Affairs) on civic education, voter education and political party strengthening programs. In 2003, along with some friends, I started an NGO called the Alliance for Peace, to try and work on good governance, peacebuilding and conflict transformation in Nepal.
I recently completed the Chevening Fellowship on Conflict Resolution and Post conflict recovery studies from the University of York, UK.
Alliance for Peace (AfP) Nepal is a non-profit, non-governmental independent organization working for a peaceful and democratic Nepal. It is a pioneer organization working on political party reforms through democratization amongst the students and youth wings of the political parties in Nepal. Our thematic areas of work include human rights, peace building and conflict transformation with gender as a cross-cutting issue. In 2002, we were a group of like-minded students and youths meeting in a coffee shop talking about the spiralling violence in the country when the genesis of establishing an organization came into being. Today, AfP consists of dedicated professionals, student political leaders and concerned youth.

Fabio Scarpello here. I read your background and I was wondering if you could help me. I am writing and article for a US publication about the end of the UN mission in Nepal. I am particularly interested in SSR and democratization and I was hoping you could comment on the latter. Do you think the UN mission was a success? With the ongoing problems in drafting the Constitution, what is the current state of the democratization process in Nepal? What would you say is the main risk for the country post-UN mission?
