Political Transition in Bhutan

Abstract

The ethnic conflict and the consequent movement for democracy and human rights have led to a high degree of politicisation in Bhutan, cutting across ethnic lines. Further, ethnic assertions by people of Nepali origin in Bhutan have meant democratisation of the Bhutanese polity and society. The slow but definite transformation of Bhutan into a constitutional monarchy is the outcome of political struggles waged by the people since the late 1920s.
