Resumo: Movements and campaigns with the goal to restore ceded territories of Nepal, which were lost after the Anglo-Gurkha War (1814-1816) through the Sugauli Treaty in 1816, have been now and then traceable in the modern history of Nepal. More significantly, due to the incorporation of a revisionist clause in all post-1962 constitutions of Nepal, one may understand that perhaps there is an official willingness to claim Nepal’s ceded territories back from India. This reinforces the idea that the territorial ambition, perhaps, is not only limited to a small-scale campaign, but has a larger scope. Interestingly, inspite of the official incorporation of the revisionist clause in Nepal’s Constitutions since 1962, there has not been any attempt to formalize the claim peacefully. Considering, as argued by the activists of Greater Nepal, that the 1950 Treaty of Peace and Friendship nullified the Sugauli Treaty, the absence of a peaceful claim is questionable and mysterious. Therefore, the aim of the dissertation is to understand why Nepal’s political authorities did not formalize a peaceful territorial claim in the post-1950 period. The major two objects of the dissertation are the rationality and the prospects of formalization of a peaceful claim to the ceded territories of Nepal. Through a systemic analysis i.e., analyses of political, social, personality and international systems in the post-1950 period, I explore the rationale that might have prevented the claim. To that purpose, an in-depth analysis of the revisionist clause was carried. Finally, by empirically gathering policy-makers’ consensus (mainly of Nepal’s four major political parties), I look at the prospect of peacefully formalizing territorial claims.
