PDF File Size: 176 KB | Download   
During the decade long armed conflict in Nepal, almost 17,000 Nepali lost their lives. Many women and girls were victims of rape and sexual assault, numerous people suffered from landmine and Improvised
Explosive Devise (IED) explosions and became disabled, whilst others suffered from torture, trauma or were forced into internal displacement. Following the signing of the 2006 Comprehensive Peace
Agreement (CPA), the Government of Nepal (GoN) formed a Special Task Force in June 2007 to collect data of the persons, families and structures affected by the conflict. The Guidelines of Economic Assistance and Relief for Conflict Victims (hereinafter guidelines)produced by the Special Task Force were
approved by the Council of Ministers on 25 April 2008. They were designed to provide guidelines for the distribution of relief for the two years following its approval, and set out general guidelines to assess who was considered a conflict victim. It was also agreed that for those victims who were still going through the process after the initial two years, a new set of guidelines would be put in place. According to the guidelines, compensation would be provided to a person injured or dependents of a person killed or missing during conflict. This included medical reimbursement for the person injured during conflict, compensation to the dependents of the person killed or missing during the conflict, scholarship support to the children of the person killed or injured and compensation for property damaged during the conflict. However, it does not recognize as victims those who suffered torture or sexual violence as noted below.
