This paper is a background study to JSRP 12 and is based on primary research carried out in nine VDCs across the Terai region in Nepal during 2012 and 2013.   It studies a range of land disputes brought to community mediation and was supported by a Fellowship provided by The Asia Foundation as part of an ongoing collaboration with the JSRP examining theories of change in practice.

An examination of the relationship between the concept of neutrality in community mediation and the inherently partisan nature of politics can be found in JSRP Paper 12| by the same authors.
