How can we build peace in post-earthquake Nepal?

This blog is written by International Alert's Elizabeth Drew and the Overseas Development Institute's Barnaby Willitts-King. It was first published on the World Economic Forum blog. Nepal experienced an armed conflict from 1996-2006. Some 14,000 people lost their lives and thousands more were injured or displaced. The war was the result of deep-set grievances. The country’s marginalised majority – poor, indigenous and ‘lower-caste’ people, youth and women – were angry at being excluded from power, wealth and opportunity in a country largely run by older male Hindu elites.
