Ameet Sharma Dhakal

Editor of Republica

2010: I am now Editor-in-Chief of Republica, an English language daily published in Kathmandu. Although the newspaper is only 2 years old, it is already considered one of the major national dailies in Nepal.

2005: I am currently working as a News Editor in The Kathmandu Post, an English National Daily. Besides writing and editing stories and overseeing news production, I also write a fortnightly column, The Edge. I mostly cover political issues but also write on economic issues occasionally.

Besides journalism, I also do research on issues related to conflict and peace. It is there I mostly use my knowledge and skills gained at the CJP as a graduate student of Conflict Transformation and Peace Building. Just recently, I led a team of Nepali researchers to prepare a country case study on “private sector and conflict” for the International Alert, London.
