On August 19 the Nepalese government arrested some 3000 political activists including the parliamentary representatives and national leaderships of the major opposition parties and the head of the student's federation and the womens' movement.The article is structured around four major themes: (1) the Maoist insurgency or ‘People's War’; (2) state formation and transformation; (3) identity politics; and (4) territorial and ecological consciousness.We also address the dynamics of migration and mobility in relation to all of these themes.The mass arrests follow the King's unconstitutional dissolution of Parliament on July 10 and the formation, by the sacked Prime Minister, of an interim council of ministers.Tens of thousands of people took part in the third general strike to sweep the country since then.The signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement of 2006 ended the armed conflict and created a base for a permanent peace and a transition towards democratic politics.Substantial progress has been made in the implementation of the Accord, although tensions between the Maoists and other political groups are still strained.We cannot name everyone individually, but recognize the many important conversations that took place in Nepal at the Carter Center, the Cornell Nepal Study Program, Martin Chautari, Social Science Baha, the Central Departments of Sociology and Anthropology at Tribhuvan University, and Patipa Palace.We are grateful to our four anonymous reviewers, whose recommendations significantly improved this article.Activists fear that the move signals a return to a form of one-party rule similar to the Panchayat system imposed by the King of Nepal in 1960.Under Panchayat all opposition parties were banned and the Parliament was dissolved.
