Abstract:
According to the works of Transparency International, Nepal is one of the most corrupted nations in the world. Moreover, far from getting better, the situation worsens at a dramatic pace whereas the Nepalese people collectively pay the price of their elite's greediness. As a poor country, its development is further undermined by massive embezzlement, and political stability nowadays seems out of reach.
In this context, concrete action against institutionalized corruption cannot be delayed. Local NGO Anticorruption Movement Nepal (Forum for Independent Thinking) dedicates itself to raise public awareness, defend victims and prevent institutional drifts in order to defeat corruption at the country scale. Among other projects, Anticorruption Movement has decided to launch an original TV program on one of Nepal's national channels.
Our ambition is to use a very popular mass medium so as to reach an unprecedentedly wide range of citizens and sensitize them to corruption-related issues. To that end, viewers will be provided with accessible information about the current state of corruption in Nepal and the South-East Asia region, as well as practical tools and advice to efficiently face up to corrupt behavior at their own level.

Our organization
Forum for Independent Thinking, Nepal is a non-governmental, and non-profit organization for the promotion of democracy and good governance founded in 2043 (1985) by a community of Nepalese intellectuals. As corruption became one of its main focuses, we decided, two years ago, to establish Anticorruption Movement Nepal as an autonomous branch of the Forum. Since then, we have been able to build partnerships with such prestigious governmental organizations as the CIAA (Nepalese Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority).
We currently have two cells in Kathmandu and the South-Western region, and plan to expand our activities within the country as Well as abroad in order to create a large-scale snowball effect on the struggle against corruption.
AMN Chairperson Bharat Jangam is an internationally-renowned lawyer, journalist and writer who have been committing himself to fight corruption and bad governance for more than three decades. Amid his most remarkable victories, one can mention the dismissal of MP life-long pensions (2000) – the same case is nowadays advocated in India – as well as life-long state facility provision to former high officials (2012) or the abolishment of the Election Area Development Funds (2001), a discretionary budget allocated to elected representatives who gave way to high scale embezzlement.
Anticorruption Movement Nepal seeks to raise public awareness and undermine corruption in Nepal through four main types of activities:
•    Advocacy and judicial assistance for corruption victims (2013: nollification of the
•    Illicit private appropriation of sacred land in the Sankhu area, Kathmandu valley)
•    Judicial work and institutional watch (as exemplified above)
•    Stimulating Research (grant programs for social science students - training program)
•    And, most importantly, Awareness and empowerment (public meetings in various
•    Regions of Nepal - meetings with district and village officials, sensitization and
