UNICEF Nepal Working Paper Series : Post- Constitutional Nation Buliding In Nepal: Equal Citizen, Market, Social Protection & The Rule Of Law
PDF File Size: 1.18 MB | Download   
This paper explains nation building as the process founded in four key propositions:
institutionalization of idea of equal citizens, building market, realization of universal social protection, and the entrenchment of the rule of law. These four propositions are key for addressing the issues of identity, ethnicity, clash of civilizations, ending gender discrimination, solving the problems on citizenship issues, and ensuring a just and inclusive society. In absence of these propositions a just and inclusive society cannot exist. Since the concept of nation has undergone a sea change from its historical tribal and ethic belongingness to the idea of allegiance subsisted in the concept of sovereignty, these four propositions provide the grounds for building a liberal democratic nation. Especially after the eighteenth century, the idea of sovereignty became so powerful that created modern states all over the world. The modern states called in different epithets nation or state or nation state emerged with the idea of sovereignty, in turn, producing the concept of civic identity or the identity of citizenship at the core of belongingness. Though, the idea of equal citizenship alone could be a weak link of the chain in the absence of liberal democracy. Thus, these four propositions with their historical connections with the idea of sovereignty have
been fortified in the post-war era as the foundations of modern democratic states. Moreover, today, nation building has developed further in the context of global constitutionalism. Against this background, this paper discusses these four propositions as the foundations of a modern state in the light of post-constitutional nation building in Nepal.
