काठमाण्डूबाहिर पनि पत्रकारिता भैरहेको छ । भलै , काठमाण्डूको तुलनामा त्यो लगानी, प्रविधि, पहुँच, प्रभाव सबै किसिमले पछाडि होओस् । त्यस्तै, पत्रिकाका सामग्रीको स्तरमा पनि काठमाण्डू नै अगाडि छ, जुन अस्वाभाविक होइन । तर यो कुरा पत्रिकाले बोक्ने विचार- सम्पादकीय- का हकमा लागू हुँदैन । सम्पादकको कलममा सङ्गृहीत सम्पादकीयहरु त्यसका साक्षी हुन्।

२०३९ सालमा पोखरामा स्थापित दैनिक जनमतमा पाँच वर्ष - २०५२- २०५७) को अवधिमा छापिएका सम्पादकीयमध्येबाट छानिएका करिब अढाई सय सम्पादकीय आलेखहरु पुस्तकमा सङ्कलित छन् । सङ्गृहीत आलेखहरुलाई छोटा निबन्धका रुपमा अध्ययन मनन गर्न सकिन्छ नै, फैलँदो मिडिया अध्ययन विश्लेषणका लागि पनि यसले सहयोग पुर् ‍ याउने छ ।

केशवराज पराजुली पोखरेली पत्रकारिताको शुरुआती दिनदेखि नै यस क्षेत्रको उन्नयननिम्ति अविछिन्न कार्यरत हुनुहुन्छ । २०३९ सालमा स्थापित दैनिक जनमतको उहाँ संस्थापक तथा सम्पादक हुनुहुन्छ । प्रेस काउन्सिल नेपालका सदस्य पराजुलीलाई उहाँले पोखरेली पत्रकारिता क्षेत्रको श्रीवृद्धिमा पुर्‌याउनु भएको योगदानका लागि विभिन्न सम्मान तथा पुरस्कार प्रदान गरिएका छन् ।

Martin Chautari

Martin Chautari (MC) is a research and policy institute based in Kathmandu, Nepal. Begun as an informal discussion group in Kathmandu in 1991, MC now focuses on research and policy on democracy, media and education, with cross-cutting themes of gender and social inclusion. Along with the continuing discussion series, publications, open library and a rigorous mentoring program of young researchers are in-built into MC’s work. These all form an intrinsic part of MC’s primary objective: strengthening the social contract between state and citizens by expanding and making inclusive the public sphere with informed dialogue, analytically rigorous research and viable policy choices.

Policy Papers


Building upon its high degree of credibility as a non-partisan, rooted research centre, Martin Chautari has been publishing policy briefs since 2009. Till date mostly focused on the new constitution writing process, these publications work to inform and communicate complex ideas and present viable policy choices. They further add analytical rigour to otherwise politicized discussion of contentious issues. Simultaneously published in English and Nepali, these policy briefs are an especially useful tool to enable and encourage public dialogue.
