  • Fribourg : IFF, 2023
English The governance of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) in Nepal was heavily centralized in the past as the country was operating under a unitary government system. The 2015 Constitution has opened the avenue to operate the TVET sector in a federalized setting with the sharing of TVET functions along with power and authority by three tiers of government. However, the sharing of power and authority between the federal and subnational governments has not been easy as highlighted by the Constitution. This paper attempts to analyse the challenges that are hindering the smooth transition of centrally held power and authority towards the subnational governments. It argues that although there is a general support and optimism for the federal transition, many challenges remain for the implementation. The existing political economy of the TVET sector limits the realisation of the Constitution’s goals of transformation for the TVET sector in a federal setting.
