Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with three stages of democratic constitution making in Nepal. It briefly introduces the constitution of 1990 and highlights particularly the reasons why the constitutional process led into the worst crisis in the modern history of Nepal. The focus however is on the peace and constitution making process triggered by the Royal take-over on February 1, 2005 and the growing repression used by King Gyanendra in the aftermath of his coup. The chapter presents a debate that is aimed at preparing the ground for the Constituent Assembly (CA). The third stage of constitution making is defined by the on-going discussion on the 'restructuring of the state' as stipulated by the Interim Constitution. A multitude of relationships and a dense network of negotiations enhance efficient and effective conflict resolution.

Keywords: conflict transformation; Constituent Assembly (CA); interim constitution; King Gyanendra; Nepal
