Abstract

During the transition period after a truce ended the 10-year civil war in Nepal, Dahal led an anthropological study of 10 different Tarai districts across the country to assess the gendered implications of the violence—violence committed to women and girl children because of their gender. A particularly disturbing finding was that the transition period immediately after the peace agreement witnessed as much violence against women and girls as the war itself. Among her topics are trapped in war: health consequences of the armed struggle in Nepal, finding a way amidst adversaries: coping strategies of internally displaced war widows living in Kathmandu, and health embedded in social context: internally displaced war widows in Nepal.
