A Guide to Government in Nepal: Structures, Functions and Practices
A Guide to Government in Nepal: Structures, Functions and Practices is a study done by The Asia Foundation in Nepal with the Center for Study on Democracy and Good Governance, Kathmandu. Along with a detailed description of the architecture of Nepali government as it has evolved over several decades, the study provides an understanding of both de jure policies and legislations as well as corresponding de facto situations and practices. The study presents a descriptive assessment of the current structure, functions and practices of Nepali government, which can be a vital reference as elections to a new constituent assembly draw near and Nepal prepares to restructure into federal form.
