Dipendra Kandel Initiative
  • Technocratic Diplomacy

    The globalized reality we live in requires us to engage in active learning and adapting to change. Therefore, all our work is conducted with an international mindset and a technocratic approach. 

    In the long run, we wish to increase international cooperation and technocratic practices across the public and private sector.

Mission, Vision and Values


Our mission is to help the governments and societies build a sustainably secure, prosperous and just world. We pursue our mission through dialogue, analysis and solutions-based ideas, and by empowering the next generation to build a better world.


To future to which we aspire: 

- Leadership: We will provide our own leadership for change and we will help develop leadership capabilities among organizations working for similar change. 

- Enlisting others: To ensure success, we will connect the needs of our service area to the interests of our supporters and organizations for change in our region. 


- Independence: The independence of our thinking, as much as its rigor and creativity, is what makes it influential. 

- Inclusivity and diversity: We ground our analysis and solutions in an inclusive approach. We bring diverse voices to the table to find common solutions to shared problems. We ensure our research and outputs are widely accessible, so people can develop their own voice in regional and global issues. 

- Cooperation: Cooperation is a core competence for our family. It inspires our relationships with associates, partners and supporters and help us develop regional and global networks to find positive, durable solutions to policy challenges.
