Les liens de la frontière. Enjeux des circulations autour de la frontière indo-népalaise

Abstract : The India-Nepal border is one of the most permeable. Every day it is crossed by thousands of Nepalese and Indians for whom it is a border only on paper. The flow of people and goods, subject to separate regulations since 1950, are uninterrupted, resulting in two interconnected nations. However, these exchanges primarily benefit India and thereby reinforce its domination of Nepal. In a continuation of the Himalayan policies of the British Empire, India considers its neighbor as a guardian of its own security. In this context, opening the border goes hand-in-hand with the economic dependency of Nepal on its South–Asian “big brother”.
