Law books launched

Kathmandu, April 30

Two books – Law and state in the globalised world: A comparative and conceptual analysis and Constitutional design and implementation dynamics: Federalism and inclusive nation building in Nepal — authored by Prof Surendra Bhandari were launched here today.

The books were jointly launched by former chief justice Kedarnath Upadhyay and former chair of Constitutional Committee Nilambar Acharya.

Addressing the programme, Upadhyay said the state must bring comprehensive laws to deal with human rights violations. He said violation of human rights were serious crimes, which attracted universal jurisdiction. He said the book was beneficial for jurists and students of constitution.

Acharya said the book would serve as an important guide for readers as it dealt with the historical perspective of constitutional development in the country.

Author Bhandari said written constitution itself could guarantee constitutionalism and successful implementation of the constitution could alone prove the excellence of the constitution. Madhes, he added, continues to express extreme dissatisfaction over the provisions of the constitution.

Advocate Indu Tuladhar, chief of Himal Innovative and Research Pvt Ltd, which published the books, said the two books would help meet the needs of the jurists and students of law.
