“Nepal: Constitution Building, Federalism And Peace ‐Managing The Transition To Federalism And Implementation Of The New Constitution”
PDF File Size: 1.69 MB | Download   
The central element of Nepal’s ongoing constitutional reform are the efforts to restructure the existing centralized, unitary state into a federal democratic system which takes full account of the diversity of its population. Following a long period of upper‐caste predominance and the exclusion of large parts of the population from any effective role in government and decision‐making, and the gradual erosion of state institutions, the debate on the future federal structure is presently dominated by identity issues. Discussions of the proposals for state restructuring mainly centre on
the names, number and boundaries of the new units, and political privileges for ethnic groups in certain areas, whereas the huge challenges of practical governance reform are either ignored or avoided. A successful transformation of Nepal into a functioning federal system crucially depends on the smooth and swift transition from the current model of governance to the one that will be prescribed in the new Constitution. A failure to move ahead on this transformation, but also a failure to implement it in a manner that brings quick and tangible results to the general public in terms of service delivery and security improvement, may well unravel the gains made in the peace process of the past three years, or may open up new fault lines of conflict.
