This is my second report to the Human Rights Council, the first having been submitted in January 2007 (A/HRC/4/97). It contains an analysis of the human rights situation in Nepal since then and reports on the activities of my Office in the country. Political developments which have had an impact on human rights are examined with a focus on issues critical to the peace process, including discrimination and representation of marginalized groups, democratic rights and the question of impunity am pleased to report that the agreement of 10 April 2005 between the Government of Nepal and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) was renewed for two years until June 2007, maintaining the comprehensiveness of its mandate.
The Office undertook monitoring and capacity-building activities, with such work being increasingly interwoven to ensure relevance to local realities and to strengthen impact. These activities were also linked to technical assistance to the Government through detailed analyses of legislation and other official rights-related documents, as well as letters, reports and meetings on case- or thematic-related issues. In 2008, the Office’s work will be increasingly reoriented towards building national capacity and technical assistance, focusing on four core themes: discrimination, impunity, democratic rights (including human rights and the elections) and security/rule of law.
