Nepal: Towards a “Great Transformation”?

Nepal: Towards a “Great Transformation”?
(organised jointly by the Feinstein International Center (FIC), Tufts University, Boston and Social Science Baha)
18 April, 2010, Kathmandu

The one-day symposium organised by FIC with its partner organisation in Nepal, Social Science Baha, which intended to present the findings of empirically-grounded research on ‘local perceptions of social transformation in rural Nepal’ that documented processes of political, socio-economical, and cultural transformation, as viewed through the voices of local people, to verify if these findings resonate with the policies of national and international actors and to discuss implications of these voices for different actors involved in the transition.
