|Title||Globalization and Labour in South Asia. Chennai: Institute for Development Alternatives/PANOS South Asia|
PARALLEL to unfolding globalisation, the decade-long (1996-2006)
armed conflict between the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) (CPNM)
and the government created great insecurity and instability in Nepal.
However, the strong forces of globalisation saw the country being
admitted to the World Trade Organisation (WTO) in the midst of the
conflict. Today, there is hardly any aspect of life in Nepal that has not
been touched by the winds of fast-blowing globalisation. Technological
advances have been changing society, institutions and social relations.
Labour and employment relations are also being continually affected by
the globalisation process and this chapter is devoted to these developments.
