Federalism and State Restructuring in Nepal the Challenge for the Constituent Assembly - Report of a Conference organised by the Constitutional Advisory Support Unit, UNDP 23-24 March 2007, Godavari, Nepal
PDF File Size: 2.55 MB | Download   
The intention had been to hold this conference outside the Kathmandu valley – partly because the topic was one in which people outside the capital might have a special interest, and partly because CASU took the view that its activities should not be too Kathmandu centered. Holding it in Biratnagar proved impracticable because this was at the height of the ferment in Tarai ironically a ferment in which claims for federalism played a major part. The venue was changed to Pokhara, but, in the few days before it was due, the Chambers of Commerce called a bandha in protest against the Maoist cadres' severe beating of a hotel owner in Kathmandu. Closure of hotels was threatened and also of flights, so the venue was shifted again, this time to Godavari just outside Kathmandu. Fortunately people were able to shift their travel plans. So on March 23rd over 130 persons (more than had been expected) gathered in Godavari. They came from far and wide – one participant said she had walked for a day and then caught a bus and then a plane to get there.
Following a formal welcome by UNDP Deputy Resident Representative (Programmes) Mr Ghulam Isaczai, over the next 2 days delegates heard presentations focussing on various aspects of federalism. The programme was organised in such a way that the first day was devoted to the consideration of the Nepali context for the debates on federalism and the second day on foreign experiences, so that foreign experts would become familiar with the Nepali context before they presented the experiences of their own countries.
