This publication is the proceedings of the conference on Deepening and Sustaining Democracy organised by the Royal Government of Bhutan, the Centre for Bhutan Studies and the United Nations Development Programme. The inspiration for this Conference emerged from discussions between the Hon'ble Prime Minister lyonchhen Jigmi Y Thinley and Mr Ajay Chhibber, United Nations Assistant Secretary General and UNDP Regional Director for Asia and Pacific. The conference was held not only to mark the smooth and peaceful democratic transition of Bhutan in 2008, but also as a platform to share lessons and experiences among countries in the region to help strengthen, deepen and sustain the democratic culture and values in Asia.
