Deepak Thapa awarded The William P. Fuller Fellowship in Conflict Resolution
Program Year: 2005
In 2005, the initial William P. Fuller Fellowship in Conflict Resolution was awarded to Mr. Deepak Thapa, Director of the Social Science Baha and a widely respected authority on the Maoist insurgency in Nepal. Mr. Thapa was affiliated with Columbia University’s Center for International Conflict Resolution as a Visiting Scholar. During his visit, he received a number of public speaking invitations, including testimony before the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on Near Eastern and South Asian Affairs.
This tribute reflects the organization’s long-standing interest in the field and Dr. Fuller’s personal concern for furthering the professional development of a cadre of young Asians with leadership potential and a commitment to advancing knowledge and experience regarding the management of sub-national conflicts.The fellowship award supports a six-month professional affiliation with a relevant institution in the U.S. arranged by The Asia Foundation. The program may also include visits to selected cities in the US and in some cases, Asia, for additional meetings with specialists.
