Seminar: “The Art of Demobilisation – Nepal, a Success Story?” in Oslo
September 11, 2013 - 09:30-15:00
In 2006 a peace agreement ended a decade-long civil war in Nepal between the state and the Maoist People’s Liberation Army. Cantonments were set up for ex-combatants, and the United Nations Mission in Nepal (UNMIN) verified about 19,600 as former combatants while more than 4,000 were found to be under-aged or joined after the ceasefire. In 2012, almost six years later, the cantonments were finally closed and over 3,000 weapons were taken over by the Nepal Army. The Demobilisation, Disarmament and Reintegration (DDR) process in Nepal has taken a long time and met with many difficulties , but can it be termed a success story after all? This seminar takes stock of the DDR process in Nepal and asks if other DDR processes can draw lessons from it.
