Report of the 2nd Regional Consultation on caste-based discrimination, Kathmandu, Nepal
PDF File Size: 839 KB | Download   
Caste-based discrimination and untouchability remain a widespread practice affecting an estimated 260 million individuals around the world considered to belong to “lower castes”. The caste system is the very negation of the principles of equality and non-discrimination, eroding the enjoyment of a wide range of political, civil, economic, social and cultural rights for Dalits
(considered untouchable in South Asia) and other caste affected groups in several countries.

In December 2011, OHCHR organized a regional roundtable bringing together representatives from UNCTs in South Asia. The event focused on sharing of good practices in law, policy and programmes among the countries concerned and paved the way for the consolidation of regional networks. n late 2012 a special consultation sponsored by OHCHR was held on the issue of stigma and caste at the Bangkok regional office in collaboration with the Special Rapporteur on the Right to Safe Drinking Water and Sanitation. In March 2013, the Guidance Note of the Secretary-General on Racial Discrimination and Protection of Minorities recommended that UN action and policies should reflect the fact that persons targeted for discrimination based on descent, in particular caste-based discrimination and related practices, are in a number of contexts in a particularly marginalized position and in need of focused attention.
