Find the Publication of  "The Conflict-Disaster Interface in the Context of the 2015 Gorkha Earthquake in Kathmandu, Nepal" here. 


The Master's Programme Peace and Conflict Studies Magdeburg conducted a research project on the topic: Nepal and the Disaster-Conflict Interface. By focussing on the specific case of Nepal, students from different programmes at Otto-von-Guericke-University Magdeburg analyzed the impact and consequences of the massive earthquake of April 2015, which caused large-scale destruction of the country’s infrastructure and about 8000 casualties. 

After a preparation period in Germany during the winter term 2017/18, our students, in Cooperation with Kathmandu University, conducted their own qualitative research during a two-week excursion to Nepal in February 2018.
