The Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Nepal(OHCHR-Nepal) was established in May 2005, following the signing of an agreement of cooperation between the OHCHR and the Government of Nepal. The Office has a mandate to monitor the observance of human rights and international humanitarian law,with a view to advising the authorities of Nepal on the formulation and implementation of policies, programmes and measures for the promotion and protection of human rights in Nepal. Since May 2005, OHCHR-Nepal has visited most of the prisons in Nepal to monitor and to report on conditions of detention. The Office has provided recommendations to the relevant authorities on individual cases as well as on general concerns about the prison management and the rights of detainees. The exhibition, “Prison and the rights of detainees”, is an awareness raising project to celebrate Human Rights Day on 10 December 2008 and to commemorate the 60th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).
