Political Transition and Constitution Implementation
Nepal entered a new phase in its democratic transition after the promulgation of the new constitution in September 2015. The constitution established Nepal as a secular, federal, democratic republic and formally ended the transition that started after the signing of the peace agreement ending the war between the state and Maoist rebels. The new constitution has been contested since the beginning and efforts towards implementing it, for example, restructuring of the local government units have met with challenges. Democracy Resource Center Nepal reports and produces analysis on Nepal’s political transition, implementation of the new constitution, local politics, and governance to make debates around Nepal’s democratic transition more informed and inclusive.
