Microdynamics of Land Conflict and Land Conflict Resolution in Nepal
PDF File Size: 1.21 MB | Download   
Distribution of land has remained one of the most contentious issues in Nepalese society as a consequence of a historical feudal land tenure system that concentrated land ownership to the wealthy few and those who were close to the authorities. The inequalities regarding land access were one of the underlying causes of the decade-long armed conflict between the Government of Nepal and the Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist (CPN-Maoist) that broke out in 1996. Prior to and during the conflict, the CPN (Maoist) adopted the slogan “jasko jot, usko pot” (land to the tillers) as an expression of discontent towards the feudalistic remnants of land distribution in Nepal.
In addition to expanding the understanding and knowledge of the multiple dimensions of land conflicts in the country, it is believed that the study can provide policymakers with the necessary resources to better design appropriate strategies and programmes for effectively addressing existing as well as potential future land conflicts.
