Nepal on the Move: Conflict, migration and stability

Projekter: ProjektForskning



Migration within Nepal, to India and to join the British army have been

practiced for generations. However, flows of migration have intensified

during the decade of armed conflict. Migrant destinations such as the

Gulf countries, Europe, North America, Southeast Asia and Australia

have attracted an increasing number of young Nepalis in search of work

and education. These changing patterns of migration have led to diverse

forms of multi-locality. We seek to understand how these mobility

processes challenge and stimulate the current nation-building project. We

address the implications of mobility for designing in a new constitution

binding notions of citizenship and civil rights that have traditionally been

linked to place of birth or registered place of residence. Bearing in mind

that a large and increasing proportion of the population is residing

outside Nepal, it is of utmost importance for democracy in Nepal to

adequately address these issues. Scrutinizing how migration and political

involvement are intertwined in the post-conflict nation-building for

people involved, the project aims at breaking new ground

methodologically and analytically in migration and conflict studies. We

also engage in knowledge-sharing workshops with relevant stakeholders

to encourage dialogue on the political importance
