Why Nepal’s ‘Other’ Commissions Matter for Justice and Inclusion: Strengthening Constitutionalism in Nepal
This note on the constitutional bodies included in Part 27 of the 2015 Constitution of Nepal, known as ‘Other’ Commissions, was produced by Niti Foundation—a Nepali not-for-profit public interest organization that accompanies locally-led policy reform, in partnership with Social Science Baha (SSB) and the National Endowment for Democracy.
Nepal’s ‘Other’ Commissions are critical actors in the constitutional framework to ensure the rights of specific minority and historically marginalized groups in the country. It is essential to explore their new constitutional role in federal Nepal to see how they can effect societal and legislative reform for these groups. This note was commissioned with this purpose.strengthening-constitutionalism-in-nepal
