Abstract

The increased geo-strategic interests and concerns of great powers have posed serious challenges to national security of Nepal.

Geopolitics is rather a crucial external factor than the other internal factors of insecurity. Thus, this article attempts to justify how regional and global geopolitical developments challenge Nepal's national security. This article explains geopolitical factors that can pose threat and challenge to national security.
