  Nationalism and Ethnic Conflict in Nepal by Mahendra Lawoti, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide.5/5(2).   Caste forms the basis of social interaction among the majority of Nepal's diverse ethnic population and there is a fairly uniform order of caste ranking even today. This is because those ethnic/caste groups whose social position is higher in the traditional hierarchy have appropriated much of the power, influence, wealth and prestige available.

  There is no national ethnic policy in Nepal in the present nor there was in the past but the major issues can be whether Nepal can be a haven of all castes and ethnic groups residing in all regions in a real sense and whether the monopoly (in all sectors) of the few elites from dominant caste groups terminates. The challenge for the new 'inclusive' Nepal is to accommodate the aspirations of the officially recognized 21 caste groups, 59 indigenous nationalities and 93 different language communities. Politics is transforming regional identity into an ethnic one.
