In Nepal, the drafting of the first constitution of the Federal Republic of Nepal by the
Constituent Assembly is underway and it is expected to be completed by the end of 2014. During the writing process of the constitution, the question of state restructuring has remained the most contested issue, which also includes the modality of federalism. The benefits of Federalism are that it can provide a governmental form safeguarding against the threats of centralized exploitation, historically embedded exclusions and discrimination against marginalized sections of the population. It is also expected that the federal model of government maintains the decentralized opportunistic behaviour while bringing decision making closer to the people. In this light, any discussions about reforms in the education sector cannot ignore the fact that Nepal is soon going to become
a federal country. Over last decade, there have been several studies carried out with regard to the different models and governance systems in the expected federal system in the country, including the division of powers among the different layers of governance structure, between national and local. Such discussions often include, among others, the issues like, decentralized local governance; policies for regional development; coordination of fiscal policies; resource distributions, national security; etc. Although education is the central pillar of newly formed states, it has not been discussed with due care in Nepal. Therefore, UNESCO Office in Kathmandu has initiated to develop a monograph series which focuses on different areas of education. This publication is one of the outcomes of the initiative compiling such monographs by education experts. This volume contains six papers commissioned by UNESCO Office in Kathmandu to ignite and orient the discussions on education in the context of federalism. A similarity of the here published papers is their approach to reflect on the experiences of other federal countries, as well as, to offer some practical recommendations. However, it has to be pointed out that these are working-papers.and thus these should be treated rather as discussion-papers to advance the discourses in a broader range and to further refine the concepts and approach. In other words, this publication can also be utilized as a resource
toolkit.
