OHCHR-Nepal is strongly committed to working with professional organizations like
the Nepal Bar Association (NBA) to maximize the opportunities for everyone to take part in
the Constitution making process. So I would like to appreciate NBA for taking the initiative in organising this workshop in collaboration with OHCHR. Our joint aim is to offer a consultative forum for law professionals, especially women lawyers, to generate discussion and suggestions useful for the Constituent Assembly (CA).
From OHCHR-Nepal’s perspective, we hope that the international human rights
instruments, including ICESCR to which Nepal is a party, may serve as an inspiration for these constitutional deliberations, inside and outside the CA. When we look at the core human rights instruments, they articulate, in language carefully negotiated by member states, including Nepal, a wide range of civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights, as well as detailing the rights of particular groups, whether they are women, ethnic, religious or linguistic minorities, indigenous peoples, or children. In my view, the process of making Nepal’s new Constitution offers a unique opportunity to strengthen the human rights legal framework for the benefit of everyone in Nepal.
