Nepal's Constitution (I): Evolution not Revolution International Crisis Group


Asia Report N°233

Discusses the end of the Constiuent Assembly, which failed to produce a constitution after four years of negotiations due to political polarization, lack of transparency and accountability, and disagreement regarding the establishment of federalism to reflect ethnic and cultural groups. Suggests that current political parties must decide whether elect a new assembly or continue working with the current one, and recommends that indentity-based claims should be taken under consideration in order to mitigate political polarization.
