Public Finance Dynamics in Education in Nepal

This project seeks to understand the dynamics associated with the flows and usages of public finances within the school education sector.

This project seeks to understand the dynamics associated with the flows and usages of public finances within the school education sector in Nepal by analyzing the manner in which different social actors interpret meanings and measure moral and legal claims, practices and behaviors tied to corruption in the context of local standards and practices. The education sector, which receives the largest government and donor budgetary allocations and has undergone significant decentralization reforms, serves as a useful window through which public financial governance and the framing and understandings of corruption in Nepal can be understood during a protracted socio-political transition. The project is led by Martin Chautari in collaboration with Kathmandu University, Nepal and Aarhus University, Denmark. The project covers a period of five years (January 2015–December 2019) and is funded by the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
