UNITED NATIONS OFFICE OF THE HIGH COMMISSIONER FOR HUMAN RIGHTS IN NEPAL Press Release 5 October 2005 NGO Code of Conduct
PDF File Size: 21 KB | Download   
Ian Martin, the Representative of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human
Rights (OHCHR) in Nepal, has expressed concern that the Government proposal
of a code of conduct for NGOs would be in breach of Nepal’s international human
rights obligations.
In a letter sent to the Minister for Women, Children and Social Welfare, the
Representative expressed concern that, under international practice, codes of
conduct for NGOs are normally initiated and defined by civil society itself and are commitments entered into voluntarily by NGOs which do not have a legally
binding character. He noted that, in contrast, in Nepal the NGO code of conduct
was being proposed by Government and would have legally binding effects on
NGOs.
