A decade-long conflict in Nepal has affected the social, economic, and political landscape of the country since it started in 1996. Thousands of people have been killed, physical infrastructure has been destroyed, hundreds of thousands of people have been displaced and development activities have slowed down.

This study is an empirical investigation of the factors that explain the conflict in Nepal. It uses the logit model to determine the factors that determine the probability of conflict in Nepal. It also derives policy implications which, when taken into consideration, will help mitigate the conflict, support the peace process and plan post-conflict rehabilitation and reconstruction.
