The 67th International Human Rights Day: Speech by Mr. Jose Asallino, Director of ILO, Nepal on behalf of Mr. Craig Sanders, Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator
PDF File Size: 46 KB | Download   
This year's Human Rights Day marks the 50th anniversary of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. Together with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, these important commitments are as relevant today as when they were adopted. It is crucial to raise awareness of these rights and I thank the National Human Rights Commission for taking this initiative to remind us all of our commitments. Since 2006 when the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) was signed, Nepal has achieved many of the peace process goals, setting the country on the path to deeper democratization. The successful CA elections in 2013 and the recent promulgation of the Constitution of Nepal on 20 September 2015 are key milestones in this process. The establishment of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and the Commission on Investigation of Disappeared Persons is also a long-awaited and crucial opportunity to clarify the historical record about the conflict, as well as support national reconciliation and accountability processes.
