Abstract

This paper is concerned with exploring tensions of national identity, as played out in the evolving context of post-accord transitional politics in Nepal. Drawing on a qualitative study of empirical research, situated at the nexus of education and violent conflict in Nepal, the paper employs close observations of recent social and political movements, especially the rise of ethnic politics following the peace agreement in 2006, and further analyses the historical antecedents aiming to create a unified national identity through language and education. It argues that educational reconstruction must deal with the notion of identity as part of a measured process to correct the legacy of ethnic, linguistic and caste-based marginalisation in Nepal.
