Daman Nath Dhungana, Chair of the Nepali Transition to Peace Institute, gives his insights into the war, the political transition, the transformation of the state and the role of the political leadership. Having played a prominent role in the development of the 1990 constitution, he warns that the narrow political basis of the 2015 constitution implies future instability, and Nepalis might have to prepare for another period of transition.
