Title: Mistakes, Miscalculations and the Search for Middle Ground: An Exit Strategy for Nepal
Author: Gautam, Kul C.
Subject(s): Human rights
Hindu king
Maoist
Abstract: Although he may have had good intentions, King Gyanendra miscalculated the effect of his draconian measures on February 1, 2005. The King and his advisors miscalculated the capacity of the military, the response from the international community, the effectiveness of loyalists, the appeal to Hindus, the role of China, as well as attitudes towards corruption and censorship. In order to return to a democratic path, a path that is also the only viable option for the survival of the constitutional monarchy, Nepal’s three political protagonists – the King, the Maoists, and the political parties – must compromise. An exit strategy is possible, but it requires that these three protagonists put the interests of Nepal above their own narrow, parochial interests.
