On 17–20 September 2012 International hosted a workshop in Kathmandu, Nepal, on successful strategies for facilitating the inclusion of marginalized groups in customary and democratic governance.
The participants at this workshop shared examples of good practice in supporting activities to improve inclusion by marginalized groups in democratic and customary/religious governance.
The main objectives of the workshop were to create a forum in which inclusion practitioners can share examples of good practice in facilitating marginalized groups’ progress from exclusion to inclusion in democratic and customary/religious governance, and to distil key elements of successful inclusion strategies that may be replicable in political context elsewhere.
