On 10 December every year, Human Rights Day commemorates the date on which the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, proclaiming its principles as the “common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations.” This year’s slogan, Human Rights 365, encompasses the idea that every day is Human Rights Day. It celebrates the fundamental proposition in the Universal Declaration that each one of us, everywhere, at
all times is entitled to the full range of human rights. Human rights belong equally to each of us and bind us together as a global community with the same ideals and values. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights promises, to all, the economic, social, political, cultural and civil rights that underpin a life free from want and fear. The power of the Universal Declaration is the power of ideas to change the world. It tells us that human rights are essential and indivisible– 365 days a year. Every day is Human Rights day: a day on which we work to ensure that all people can gain equality, dignity and freedom. Currently, the peace process in Nepal is at crucial juncture many expectations hinging on the writing of a new Constitution by January 22. Constitutions include principles, which set the stage for important rights and protections. It is important for Nepal at this phase to guarantee that the provisions related to human rights of all groups’ regardless caste, gender, social, economic, geographic and political ensuring the fundamental rights of Nepalese people, especially women. For victims of the conflict, we need to bring about a transformation so that they can deal with past. We must not forget the pain and lack of closure which victims and their families are still living with. Cases of grave human rights abuses committed by all sides during the conflict should be promptly, thoroughly, independently and impartially addressed, and a Truth and Reconciliation Commission & Commission on Enquiry of Enforced Disappearance established, in full compliance with both Nepali and international law. UN encourages a holistic approach to transitional justice, consisting of National Consultations, Truth-seeking, Criminal prosecution, Reparations programmes, and Institutional reform.
