United Nations University Centre for Policy Research What Works in UN Resident Coordinator-led Conflict Prevention: Lessons from the Field June 2018
PDF File Size: 870 KB | Download   
In April 2006, after suffering ten years of civil war between a Maoist insurgency and an increasingly autocratic royal government, the people of Nepal took to the streets and forced the country’s King to hand power back to the political parties. Peace negotiations between the leaders of the newly empowered political parties and the Maoists culminated first in a ceasefire agreement in May 2006 and then in the signing
of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) in November 2006. Since then, Nepal has struggled with interlocking transitions from war to peace, from autocracy to democracy,and from an exclusionary and centralised state to a more inclusive and federal one.
This case study aims to fill that gap and examine the role of the UN Resident Coordinator (RC) and the UN Country Team (UNCT) in supporting peace process implementation and in leading initiatives aimed at addressing the root causes of conflict and reducing the risk of conflict relapse.This is the only one of this broader research project in which the considered timeframe overlaps (from 2007-11)
with the presence of a UN peace operation, namely UNMIN. We justify this deviation from the “non-mission setting” –criteria with the fact that UNMIN was a non-integrated mission and the UNCT was operating largely independently (albeit in coordination and consultation with UNMIN). We thus posit that the lessons from Nepal during that period have potential applicability for non-mission settings elsewhere.
