Nepal: Local Leadership & Governance

Krishna Hachhethu (Author) Krishna P. Khanal (Author) Lok Raj Baral (Author)
Synopsis Local Leadership and Governance” is the continuation of the previous study on Leadership in Nepal. Leadership at local and national levels has distinct role to perform but the traits of leadership are common. In a country like Nepal, where most local issues engage national leaders during election, the importance of grassroots levels democracy becomes more relevant. Such interconnectedness between the local and national makes a composite character of leadership and governance. Based on the case study of four local institutions-one district development committee, one municipality and two village development committees, the district and village committees, the composition and functions are more or less similar. The Bhaktapur municipality has district position among all other municipalities of the country. Its leadership-building pattern is insulated as no dominant caste groups such as Brahmin and Chhetri or for that matter the high caste or class Newar groups from the leadership. Such a contrast has added much flavour to the book.
