The United Nations And Nepal's Peace Process
Abstract:
Since 1990 Nepal has undergone considerable turbulence in its attempt to embrace more open political and economic systems. Despite achieving democratic rule in April 1990 in the wake of a “people’s movement”, the country soon faced internal armed conflict after the Communist Party of Nepal(Maoist) launched an insurgency in 1996. While in its early stages this conflict was largely confined to the mid-western regions, it steadily gained momentum, and the response of the security services further alienated large parts of the population. At the beginning of the conflict security operations were conducted by the Nepal Police, later reinforced by the Armed Police Force. In November 2001 the Nepal Army was mobilised to combat the growing insurgency, and in November 2002 the police were placed under the “unified command” of the Army for joint counter-insurgency operations. Both the Maoist insurgents and the security forces committed serious violations of international humanitarian law.
