By A Staff Reporter, Dhulikhel, Nov 12: Kathmandu University School of Law (KUSOL) is going to host an international conference on November 22-23 in Kathmandu to discuss federalism in Nepal.
The conference aims to address challenges arising from Nepal's federal system adopted with the promulgation of new constitution in 2015. Noted experts from Nepal and abroad will examine issues related to the intergovernmental coordination, equitable resource distribution and inclusive decentralized governance.
Former Australian Chief Justice Robert French will deliver the keynote address. Supreme Court Judge Dr. Ananda Mohan Bhattarai will offer remarks.
The conference will review Nepal's seven years of federalisation and analyse strengths, weaknesses, and pitfalls to suggest more robust implementation going forward, said Professor Bipin Adhikari, conference convener.
Around 100 experts and practitioners will participate in the event where at least 14 thematic papers will be presented.
Since its founding in 2013, KUSOL has provided quality interdisciplinary legal education in Nepal.
