Our nonviolent conflict transformation work supported peace efforts in the country from 2006 to 2019

Home / Asia / Nepal


The signing of the Comprehensive Peace Accord in 2006 between the Nepali government and the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) marked the end of the Civil War that started a decade earlier, but significant challenges to the peace process persist. Search was established in Nepal in 2006 with the aim to support the peace process. We used our global expertise in building multimedia projects, facilitating dialogue, and collaborating with local partners to address the peace process challenges and promote nonviolent conflict transformation. Our programs focused around reconciliation, democratic participation of marginalized groups, access to security and justice, education sector governance and accountability, economic participation, and collaborative and inclusive leadership.
