Nepal Tarai: Context and Possibilities

Nepal Tarai: Context and Possibilities
(with the support of BP Koirala India-Nepal Foundation, Kathmandu)

10-11 March, 2005

Social Science Baha hosted this conference to bring together experts to address the various facets of the Nepal Tarai. With the national debate on ‘inclusion’ being limited to Janajatis, Dalits and women at that time, there was continuing danger that the neglect of the Nepal Tarai would lead to a festering and un-addressed situation. Some of the areas covered by the papers were the peopling of the Nepal Tarai, modern demographic trends, the politics of citizenship, ‘open border’, interface with Bihar and eastern Uttar Pradesh, economy, industrialisation, hill-plain interaction, evolving inter-community relations, and development issues in the Tarai.
