ABSTRACT
This paper discusses the issue of social inclusion of people with disabilities who acquired impairments through Nepal's decade-long insurgency. In-depth qualitative interviews have been conducted with nine individuals. A disparity in government facilities and services was observed, whereby the combatants reported receiving fewer services than the Nepali army. In relation to their impairments, participants experienced mostly non-discriminatory behaviour from their families, whereas their perceived impression of the community's behaviour was mixed. Additionally, participants were anxious about their daily living in part resulting from insufficient facilities and inadequate community inclusion strategies, as well as the lack of activities that can help increase opportunities for their economic well-being.
