On State Reconstruction in Nepal

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The growing scholarship on the causes and complexities of the Maoist rebellion in Nepal in the 1990s and early 2000s gives undue emphasis to state failure and “internal” factors, which offer only a partial explanation. Understanding the armed revolt and the process of state reconstruction must include a broader geopolitical analysis on Nepal’s integration into the processes of globalisation, felt primarily through the economic and political dominance of the Indian state.
