In the next several months, Nepal will see several rounds of elections. But democracy is about a lot more than voting. It must extend beyond election day. Institutions, practices, and values must be in place that advance the will of the people and protect the freedom and rights of individuals. Laws, and not individual people, must prevail. By bringing together several distinguished speakers, this month's panel discussion examines the progress Nepali has made in these areas and the challenges that yet remain.

About the Fulbright Lecture Series: In celebration of the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the U.S. and Nepal, the Fulbright Commission (USEF) in Nepal is organizing a lecture and policy discussion event each month in 2017. The lecture series brings together the alumni of various U.S. exchange programs and other Nepal experts to examine issues of importance to both countries. The views expressed in the lecture series belong to each speaker; they do not necessarily represent the views of the Commission. The events are open to the public.
About Fulbright Nepal: Established in 1961, the Fulbright Commission (or USEF) is a bi-national organization governed by a Board of Directors appointed by the Government of Nepal and the US Ambassador to promote mutual understanding, rigorous education and research, and open and fact-based examination of important topics. The Commission supervises Fulbright scholarships, Humphrey scholarships, Opportunity Fund scholarships, and USEF's Educational Advising Center (EAC), which provides accurate, reliable and free information about U.S. colleges and universities.
