Non Violence Research Project (2017-2018)
Non Violence Research Project aimed to shed light on the 2006 April uprising by a Nepalese-Swedish research team. The main objective for this project was to observe general trends concerning factors influencing the decision of citizens to participate or not – in the nonviolence protests. This research has provided an opportunity to exchange knowledge, strengthen institutional collaboration, and exchange information between Nepalese and Swedish peace and conflict researchers. It built a unique survey database on participants and non-participants in the 2006 nonviolent uprising, a database that has generated research on the under-studied nonviolent experiences of Nepal. CSC, in collaboration with the Department of Peace and Conflict Research, Uppsala University, is in the process of publishing research report and journal articles in near future.
