Political engineering is as contentious as defining and adapting democracy in conptemporary society. Both processes can by omission or commission polarize the very society they seek to build. The Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal is therefore no exception.
Our field work as Rotary Peace Fellows to Kathmandu and Pokhara in Nepal for close to ten days (14th -22nd March) was about identifying conflicts and making contributions to solutions already crafted and initiated by local actors in search of common ground on the field. Kathmandu being the political capital of Nepal, and Pokhara being the eco-tourism live wire of Nepal were by design our main epicenters of conflict and peace discussions.
