Indicators for Monitoring Economic, Social and Cultural Rights in Nepal - A user's guide
PDF File Size: 1.02 MB | Download   
The National Human Rights Commission has been carrying out its mandate of monitoring and investigating cases of human rights violations related to civil and political rights of the people. Established in the wake of the armed conflict, NHRC has remained committed to its mandate of monitoring and investigating human rights violations related to civil and political rights in the conflict as well as post-conflict situation. The lack of fulfilment of even the most basic rights was the root cause of the armed conflict. In realisation to this, NHRC has given its priority to protect and promote economic, social and cultural rights, particularly of the marginalized and vulnerable sections of the society. As envisaged in the Strategic Plans of the NHRC, these rights are extremely crucial for addressing the issues of those who have remained outside the purview of the State and for improving their standard of living. Failure to address these issues may hinder peace and stability in the country. I feel that citizens would realise their rights in real sense only when they are able to enjoy their basic rights such as the economic, social and cultural rights.
