Location: Berkley Center Third Floor Conference Room Map

Nepal is at a crossroads in its history: five years after its decade-long civil conflict formally ended in 2006, the country is working to transition into a federal republic from nearly 240 years of monastic rule as a Hindu kingdom. This series of roundtable discussions explored the faith dimensions of development and nation-building in Nepal, where a diverse group of faiths and ethnicities are all seeking an active role in the newly formed democratic structures. In this discussion Chintamani Yogi reviewed the role of religion in peacebuilding, education, and development in Nepal.
