Description

The Maoist insurgency is the product of Nepal's failed governance and persisting under-development. This brief study shows that the Maoists' violent methods to capture power may not have the approval of dominant elites and international community, but their political and socio-economic agenda have considerable appeal for the poor and long suppressed Nepalese masses. After analyzing the seven years of insurgency, the study critically examines the responses of the Nepalese government and the international community, particularly the US, UK and China. The study also underlines that India may have to radically redefine its approach to the developments in Nepal to preserve and promote the Kingdom's peace and stability, as also in its own enlightened strategic interests. It concludes that the King's military methods will not yield easy and desirable results, and for a lasting solution, Nepal's political and social order will have to be drastically transformed so as to accommodate popular aspirations unleashed by the Maoist movement.
