PDF File Size: 121 KB | Download   
Mr. Anaya, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights and fundamental freedoms of indigenous peoples, visited Nepal 24 November to 2 December 2008 and, in his report, reviews the human rights situation of the Adivasi Janajati, analysing the ongoing process of constitution-making and political transition as it relates to them. The report assesses the implementation of Nepal’s expressed initiatives to secure the rights of the Adivasi Janajati, as reflected in Nepal’s ratification of the ILO Indigenous and Tribal Peoples Convention, 1989 (No. 169) and its support of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, as well as in a number of policy and law reforms at the domestic level.
