Nepal Dialogues Initiative


Nepal Dialogues Initiative (NDI) is a collective of efforts made by dialogue practitioners towards furthering the culture of dialogue in Nepal, especially in the context of growing recognition of diversity and the need for intentional efforts to address conflict that might arise from these differences. NDI is a loose forum where organizations and individuals practicing dialogue have come together to harness the power of dialogue in Nepal by mutual exchange of knowledge, skills and resources related to dialogue and peacebuilding in Nepal.

Building on various efforts made previously to converge dialogue practices in Nepal, the NDI was inaugurated formally in 2021 at the Nepal Forum for Restorative Justice, which serves as the Secretariat of NDI and also hosts Nepal’s first-ever Dialogue Resources Center in Nepal. Since its inception, the NDI has been building resources (both knowledge products and human resources) through regular events such as workshops, trainings and conferences in areas related to dialogue and peacebuilding in Nepal. Nepal Dialogues Summit is its flagship event.

Nepal Dialogues Summit 2023

The Nepal Dialogues Initiatives organized the first Nepal Dialogues Summit on 19-20 December 2022 in Kathmandu as a way of connecting local, national and international peacebuilders in a shared space of mutual learning and inspiration. Themed “grassroots to global” (G2G), the 2022 Summit made linkages of the efforts made in the grassroots of Nepal’s peacebuilding work to the national and global levels. The chief guest of the event was Ms. Ouided Bouchamaoui, the Nobel Peace Prize winner of 2015 who shared deep insights on creating dialogic spaces by civil society when the nation faces a crisis of division. It also helped participants enhance their understanding about the use of dialogue vertically (local-regional-national) and horizontally (across various social, political and cultural issues).

Building on this momentum, NDI is organizing the second edition of Nepal Dialogues Summit on 20-21November 2023, the week which marks the signing of Comprehensive Peace Accord in Nepal. The purpose of the Summit is also to widen the scope of dialogue by engaging governmental and non-governmental stakeholders together and explore ways to integrate dialogue in their works.

One particular aspect of Nepal Dialogues Summit will be to bring the government actors to the fold of dialogue and mutually develop ways to integrate dialogue in the government’s peace governance mechanisms.

Some highlights of Nepal Dialogues Summit 2023:

  • To be participated by more than 200 individuals from over 50 community-based and national organizations from all over Nepal
  • Session with an international expert in peacebuilding from Asia, who will be a keynote speaker and she will share the space with national and grassroots dialogue workers of Nepal to co-create ways to scale dialogue bottom-up (‘grassroots to global’)
  • Sessions with CSOs on building advocacy pathways for dialogue
  • Sessions with Government of Nepal stakeholders on integrating dialogue
  • Session on building competencies for intercultural dialogue in Nepal

The overall aim will be to foster the culture of dialogue in Nepal through shared efforts of government and non-government agencies.
