Further Progress Essential for Durable Peace, says High Commissioner’s Annual Report to Human Rights Council
PDF File Size: 137 KB | Download   
The report points out that progress towards strengthening the national human rights
system has been made, including through the appointment of commissioners to the
National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), the signing or ratification of several
international human rights instruments, and the promulgation of regulations providing for quotas for marginalized groups and women in recruitment to the civil service, the police and the army. The issuing of more than two million citizenship certificates is
another major step forward in addressing the situation of marginalized groups. The Supreme Court played a key role in support of human rights in 2007 with landmark decisions on disappearances, on investigations in the Maina Sunuwar case and on the rights of sexual minorities.
