Constitutional History and Constitutional Migration: Nepal

What is constitutional identity, and how does it emerge? Nepal is an ideal case study for exploring the concept of constitutional identity because it sits uneasily within the traditional taxonomies used in the discipline and has been pulled in conspicuous ways between the conflicting imperatives of constitutional autochthony and constitutional globalization. A long indigenous history of monarchical rule, religious conservatism, and legalized discrimination remains to be fully reconciled with the influence of modern-day international human rights norms.
