August 23, 2017, time: 10.00 a.m.
Venue: Conf. Room No.2, Main Bldg.,India International Centre (IIC), Lodhi Road. Organised by Solidarity Centre for South Asian Democracies
2017 is an unusually significant year in global affairs, but it is more so in Nepal-India ties. Lately, two neighbours have made efforts to make high level state visits more regular. However, there are many issues that have been creating misunderstandings at the citizens’ level of two countries. Major foundations of Nepal-India ties i.e. open border between two countries, 1950 treaty which provides equal national treatment to citizens of both the countries, etc. have been questioned by the people in both the countries due to the various reasons more because of ideological motivations than due to a nuanced understanding of the ground realities. Sometimes natural calamities including flood become issues of uninformed debate in popular media. Also, new initiatives i.e. China proposed one Belt one Road Initiative (BRI), India initiated Bay of Bengal Initiative for Multi-Sectoral Technical and Economic Cooperation (BIMSTEC), etc. have made people further confused about the traditional relationship between Nepal and India.
Given the background we wish to organise a round-table on “Importance of People-to-People Relations” at IIC, Delhi on the 23rd of August 2017. Official visit of the PM of Nepal Honourable Sher Bahadur Deuba also begins on 23 August 2017. The objective of the event is to have better understanding about the contemporary situation of Nepal-India relations and future direction, the discussants will be politicians, civil society members, academia and media persons from both the countries.
