This report outlines some of the major disagreements that have arisen during the constitution-building process in Nepal, at times severely threatening the peace process.

It also shows that bringing together opposing groups and finding common ground among them is possible.

Based on a series of political dialogues organized by the Nepal Federation of Indigenous Nationalities (NEFIN) and International IDEA, the report describes steps taken to create a safe space for meaningful interaction and the resulting consensus that was reached on some of Nepal’s most pressing issues.
