Representative of the office of the high commissioner for human rights (OHCHR), and gillion mellsop, unicef representative.the right of children in nepal to grow up in an environment free from violence has been severely affected during the last 11 years of armed conflict. children have been manipulated, indoctrinated, used, injured, and killed by both parties to the conflict. addition, the political culture that has developed during the past few decades has not fully respected the right of children to mature independently from political interference.examples include the politicization of educational institutions and the selection of teachers along political party lines; political actors, including political parties and student unions, entering schools to take children to rallies in contradiction of basic rules and without the knowledge or consent of their parents; the CPN-M recruiting children from schools into their militia, cultural groups and other organizations against the will of their guardians, and the luring of large numbers of children living on the streets to play an active part in political rallies protests.children might face further violence and manipulation, if necessary precautionary measures are not adopted.
