UNICEF Nepal Working Paper Series-Constitution Making Process in Nepal: Citizenship Discourse Imapct on Women And Children
PDF File Size: 387 KB | Download   
This paper has analyzed the citizenship provisions proposed by the Constituent Assembly from the children and women rights perspectives. It argues that the proposed gendered biased nature of the existing and proposed provisions on nationality and citizenship right in Nepal is unjustifiable. Because it perpetuates discrimination between men and women with the idea of reinforcing patriarchy in the background. It has recommended an urgency to redouble the efforts in making provisions to ensure gender equality and prevent the statelessness of the children in the new Constitution
of Nepal.
