Households, Livelihoods and Social and Political Transformation in Nepal
The project examines the underlying changes in economic and social conditions in Nepal and their relationship to the political transformation that is taking place. The focus is on ''identity politics''; how caste, class, regional and ethnic identities at the individual and household level reflect the changing economic and social conditions, and how these in turn feed into politics at the local and national level. The analysis will contribute to the ongoing debate on state restructuring, in particular the federalization of Nepal.
The project is a collaboration between CMI and a group of researchers at Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Tribhuvan University (TU) led by Professor Chaitanya Mishra.
