OHCHR Releases FAQ on Discrimination, and ESCR
PDF File Size: 148 KB | Download   
Today OHCHR-Nepal released a booklet in Nepali titled “Frequently Asked Questions on Economic,Social and Cultural Rights”(ESCR). The Office formulated it to answer some common questions about the nature and enjoyment of economic, social and cultural rights that OHCHR has encountered during its work. The booklet responds in particular to questions about the rights related to an adequate standard of living. It is widely recognized that deep rooted discrimination, marginalization, exclusion, and lack of democratization are among the root causes of conflict. For the peace process to succeed in Nepal, it is necessary that people’s basic needs for food, health, education and shelter, in other words economic, social and cultural rights, are met. OHCHR is developing some tools to increase awareness about human rights. One tool, released two months ago, was the FIR comic strip, which demystifies the procedure of accessing justice, an important aspect of equality. This booklet is a second tool. The Office expects that both tools will be read widely.
