The Nepal Peace Monitor Annual Review 2017
Peace, Collective Campaign for; Monitor, Nepal | October 2018
In 2017, Nepal made significant progress towards implementing the new constitution, which included the federal restructuring of the state and conducting three tiers of elections. Trends of incidents this year were characterized by the peaks of violence surrounding the various stages of elections, as the largest share of incidents were related to politics. Apart from political and electoral incidents, gender-based violence (GBV) and personal disputes constituted large shares of violence documented. Sexual assault and domestic violence remained at elevated levels throughout 2017. Political violence resulted in a high number of incidents and increased number of injuries, but disputes of a personal nature and GBV, remained the leading cause for violent deaths. There were no incidents of armed conflict or international terrorism in Nepal, and violence due to crimes such as robbery, drug trafficking, or arms smuggling, was low. This points to positive progress made in the country since the years of internal conflict in Nepal.
