This policy analysis paper titled “Policy Options for Improving Industrial Relations in Nepal” is prepared under the banner of Nepal Economic Growth Agenda (NEGA) 2014, which is preceded by NEGA 2012 and NEGA 2013.
NEGA is an annual effort of Samriddhi Foundation to identify key constraints to Nepal’s economic growth and policy options for reform.
This specific policy analysis paper looks at how disputes, both of rights and interests, are addressed as per the available legal resources. It also seeks to understand the problems associated with the current institutional setup, and examine alternative dispute resolution mechanism as a viable alternative to improving industrial relations in Nepal.
In providing recommendations for improving the institutional set up for collective bargaining and dispute resolution, the paper also draws comparisons among countries around the globe to suggest ways through which industrial relations in the country can be improved.
