Local International Learning Project (LILP)

Nepalese Study Tour

INCORE/LILP in association with the Nepal National Peace Campaign, gave Nepalese politicians the opportunity to learn from the Northern Ireland experience of peace building.

Twenty Nepalese delegates met with politicians closely involved in the Irish peace process and with experts from the University of Ulster in conflict resolution.

Dr Billy Leonard, former LILP Project Co-ordinator said:

“The situation and experiences in Northern Ireland from the late 1980s to the signing of the Good Friday Agreement have much to offer the politicians of Nepal.INCORE was therefore able to facilitate this programme and bring together politicians and representatives from civil society throughout Ireland. Their contributions on the difficult issues of conflict resolution and peace-building were greatly appreciated by our visitors from Nepal.”

Liz Philipson from the Nepal National Peace Campaign said:

“The week in Northern Ireland was invaluable for the Nepal group. The second ceasefire broke in Nepal last year and the opportunity to engage directly with people who have themselves struggled to get a process back on track provided so many relevant insights. The programme that INCORE out together was both appropriate and exciting and participants gained much from it.”
