From 1997-1999, she set up a program in health and reproductive rights in Bangladesh, India and Nepal through Harvard University. Her documentary "PANI" (Water) was shown at the World Water Forum in Kyoto in 2003. She has consulted for UNDP, UNICEF, CECI Canada, IRC Netherlands and other non-governmental organizations. She currently contributes a weekly op-ed to, the online portal of Nepal's English daily Kathmandu Post. She is also working on a book about trafficking of Nepali girls to India.
The justice system in Nepal has been severely impacted by the conflict. Both the formal system (Courts, police, public prosecutors, legal aid organizations, Bar Assocation) and the informal justice systems (tribal elders, religious systems, etc) have been impacted by conflict. The formal system has mostly withdrawn to the city centers, and there is a void of justice institutions in the countryside. In this talk, I look at ways in which day-to-day administration of justice, including the registering of birth and deaths, citizenship certificates, the resolution of small disputes has been stalled through current political developments which has created a void by removing elected officials. In addition, I also look at ways in which people are marginalized through caste, gender and ethnicity in accessing the formal system.
