Remarks by Richard Bennett, Representative of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights in Nepal at a Programme to Mark Human Rights Day organised by the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), 10 December 2009, Kathmandu. The theme that the High Commissioner has chosen for Human Rights Day this year "embrace diversity, end discrimination" is surely of great relevance in Nepal. Nepal is a diverse country in many respects-it has multiple ethnicity, religions, languages and castes; it has women, men and people
of different sexual orientations;city livers and rural dwellers and so on. Every society that embraces diversity enhances its richness and depth, and becomes more dignified and peaceful. Social inclusion and equality are fundamental to the success of peace process. It is no exaggeration to
say that the root cause of armed conflict in Nepal lies in the social injustice and the historical denial of basic rights to marginalized and minority communities, including for example, work, food and housing.
