Bhutanese Citizenship Act 1985
The Bhutanese Citizenship Act of 1985 was introduced by the Druk Gyalpo King King Wangchuck, on June 10, 1985, modifying the definition of a Bhutanese citizen. The Act was implemented as part of a new national policy of Driglam Namzha, national customs and etiquette. Because of its emphasis on Bhutanese culture, the Act is also referred to as the "One Nation, One People Act." The 1985 Act was amended by the Immigration Act of 2007 and then superseded in 2008 by the Constitution of Bhutan insofar as previous laws are inconsistent; where not inconsistent, the provisions of the 2007 Act, the 1985 Act, and previous Acts relating to immigration continue in effect.

—Carol Gilligan (20th century)
“To act collectively is according to the spirit of our institutions.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
