CSC team leader heads Research Project

Peace researchers in Uppsala and Nepal will be working together in a joint research- and exchange project, funded by the Swedish Research Council and headed by Dr. Prakash Bhattarai. Through survey analysis the project will try to explain why some, but not others, choose to participate in the nonviolent revolution of Nepal (2006). The research team consists of Professor Isak Svensson (project-leader), Assistant Professor Karen Brounéus, Assistant Professor Charles Butcher (Otago), PhD candidate Susanne Schaftenaar, and Dr Prakash Bhattarai.
