Nearly 2500 additional conflict, protest, and non-violent events have been added to the ACLED Nepal dataset, expanding coverage back to 2010. The newly added data indicate a relatively low level of violence against civilians, remote violence, and battles in Nepal, relative to other Asian countries. Rather, the political landscape in Nepal is more prone to cycles of riots and protests corresponding to major political events. Occasionally, as in November 2013 and November 2018, an increase in reported riots and protests correspond to a similar, though smaller, spike in other types of political violence. These two particular time periods contained major national elections in Nepal, which came with bursts of election-related political violence and unrest.
