Strengthening the Capacity of the National Human Rights Commission Project (SCNHRC)
PDF File Size: 334 KB | Download   
Despite some progress in recent years, the overall human rights situation in Nepal remains unsatisfactory and presents a serious challenge to long-term peace and security. Human rights violations such as extra judicial killings, abductions, torture, violence against women, caste-based discrimination, child labor and abuse of migrant workers are widespread and often go unaccounted. These challenges are further augmented by corruption, an unaccountable public service and obliviousness in the administration of justice. This state of affairs calls for increased support to the NHRC in effectively fulfilling its mandate to promote and protect human rights. The project aims to bridge this gap.
