Author: Kåre Vollan


This book identifies which of Nepals many caste and ethnic groups have managed to get elected to parliament (including the two constituent assemblies) since 1991 without any assistance from affirmative action and which groups have generally been excluded from unless some measures of inclusiveness are applied. It also provides suggestions on how these excluded groups can be ensured representation though the application of minimum quotas.
