ILO Convention 169 and Peace Building in Nepal
PDF File Size: 1.84 MB | Download   
Poverty, discrimination, unemployment and the emergence of a culture of conflict have surfaced as major factors for the continuation of political instability in Nepal. In a climate of growing instability and escalating violence, there has been increased recognition of the multi-ethnic and multi-cultural character of Nepali society and the need for respecting this diversity for political stability and social progress. Nepal has at least 59 indigenous peoples (known as “Janajatis” or “Nationalities”), who are holders of distinct languages, cultures, beliefs and knowledge systems. The 2001 Census sets the total indigenous population at 8.4 million, constituting 37.2% of the total population in the country. The ongoing Maoist insurgency has succeeded in putting the empowerment, inclusion and advancement of indigenous nationalities firmly on the national political agenda.Convention 169 is the foremost legally binding international instrument protecting the rights of these peoples and provides the legal framework for the ILO’s work on indigenous and tribal peoples, including technical assistance programmes and other operational activities. On a broader level, the overall mandate of the ILO is to promote social justice, thereby contributing to universal and lasting peace. As such, the concerns of indigenous and tribal peoples, whose marginalization has often led to violent conflict in many parts of the world, clearly falls within its ambit.
