Forms and Patterns of Social Discrimination in Nepal
PDF File Size: 827 KB | Download   
The United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization,hereinafter referred to as UNESCO, entrusted us to conduct a study into the existing patterns of social discrimination in Nepal. This report is an outcome of that assignment. The “research framework” provided by UNESCO, for this study, defined discrimination as “the differential treatment and failure to treat all persons equally without reasonable or intelligible criteria”. It is the practice of distinction, exclusion, or preferences made between people based on their race, colour, sex, religion, political opinion, or any other types of social position. Such a preference or exclusion is discriminatory in the sense that it nullifies or impairs equality of opportunity, and favours some against others in employment, occupation, the control, distribution, and use of political power as well as economic resources. Preferences made to a certain section of society by overlooking others in the distribution and share of social privileges and opportunities is a serious violation of human rights. A number of international agencies and conventions have declared that equality in opportunities of life is a fundamental human right of all categories of people living in all parts of the world. This concern shown by the international community and related voices raised by civil societies are however, not taken seriously in many places. People in many parts of the world still suffer from the problem of discriminatory practices on the grounds of their race, colour,
creed, caste, gender, and ethnicity.
