Building Capacity of National Human Rights Institutions: The Case of Nepal
PDF File Size: 1.08 MB | Download   
The context of the establishment of national human rights institutions (NHRIs) is a new phenomenon in the world. Triggered by the World Conference on Human Rights in 1993, the number of national human rights institutions is growing around the world. Nepal was able to establish a national human rights institution only in the year 2000- about eight years after the March 3, 1992 resolution of the United Nations Commission on Human Rights and UN General Assembly Resolution 48/134 of December 1993 outlining the establishment of NHRIs. This book Building Capacity of National Human Rights Institutions: The Case of Nepal is the output of Dr Bipin Adhikari who worked for about two years as the human rights capacity development advisor. It focuses on efforts towards developing the capacity of the National Human Rights Commission as a test case of national human rights institutions (NHRIs) emerging around the world as an important state apparatus to protect and promote human rights. Starting with international guidelines - the Paris Principles and United Nations Handbook, the book discusses the context behind establishing the Commission, its mandate and powers, and attempts towards prevention by promoting human rights through education and information, protecting them through an effective complaints and investigation mechanism, and prevention through review and scrutiny of existing legislation and policy. It deals with several capacity-building works being undertaken at the Commission, and the degree to which the Commission is successful in carrying out its mandate to promote human rights and protect the rights of the citizens. The study looks at how the Commission is acquiring
legitimacy and a reputation as a credible and independent institution.
