Economics and Culture

Politics and Culture

Over the past fifty years Bhutan's government has gone through many changes. For one the legal system has changed to be a mix of Tsa-Yig code and English common law. For decades Bhutan has been ruled by a king, and even though they are moving towards a constitutional monarchy, the king still has a lot of power. On reason they are just now transfering to a constitutional monarchy is that for most of Bhutan's life as a country they have had very limied contact with he outside world, having only very limited contact with India and has only started to open up in the recent-ish past.
