Nepal’s road map for peace


As the government and the Maoists sit down for the third round of talks, the human rights group INSEC has come up with a \'road map' plan consisting of nine phases starting with the formation of an all-party government that will include the Maoists. "All the phases are interrelated and there is room to develop sub-phases," says Subodh Raj Pyakurel of INSEC. "It's a long road and we believe the peace process has not actually started yet." He said the road map is based on what expressions the government and the Maoist rebels have made public so far. The fifth phase in the INSEC document even requires ministers representing the Maoists to "take an oath in the open-air theatre publicly declaring to withdraw from the peace process if their demands are neglected". Pyakurel believes this will bolster the psychological pressure needed to push the peace process towards a satisfactory resolution.
