dc.description.abstractThe conflict in Nepal has deep economic and social roots. The study suggests that income, health, education, access to physical infrastructure, and deprivation from the social services are dominant factors in explaining the conflict. Low income with low levels of economic activities have been demotivating factors, have added to public resentment and helped aggravate the conflict. The results also suggest that higher levels of education raised public expectations. The lack of employment opportunities, however, increased frustration and fueled violence. This finding suggests a significant policy implication that mere educational attainment is not sufficient to mitigate conflict.
