Dr. Susan Risal's PhD Thesis

Using a critical theory framework and case study methodology, the primary goal of this research was to understand how the women who faced gender-based violence during the conflict era of Nepal define dignity and justice from their own lived experience and, consequently, their needs for reparations.


This book summarizes preliminary findings of A research based on data collection and analyses (May 2017-April 2019) for Dr. Susan Risal's PhD on “Defining Justice and Dignity through Gendered Peace Building: A case study of women who experienced sexual violence in Nepal during the conflict.”
