Language will be one of the most important issues for the writers of Nepal’s new constitution. In grappling with it, there are in fact two sets of questions for Nepal to discuss.

Second, how can constitutional design respond to linguistic diversity—in particular, what is the relationship between official language policies and federalism? This article explores these issues.
