The ‘Drivers of Legitimacy’ in Nepal

Collaborating partners: The Asia Foundation and Interdisciplinary Analysts (IDA)
Project duration: 15 May 2007 to 15 August 2007

This research project for DfID/Nepal used both qualitative and quantitative methods to look at government legitimacy in Nepal through two interrelated but distinct concepts: how the legitimacy to rule is established, and how the legitimacy to continue to rule is maintained.
