PDF File Size: 146 KB | Download   
The National Dalit Commission(NDC) and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Nepal (OHCHR - Nepal), on the eve of the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, call on the Government to take the steps necessary to fulfill its commitment to end all forms of discrimination, including caste-based discrimination. The human rights situation in Nepal was recently reviewed by the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva through the Universal Periodic Review (UPR). Among the recommendations provided by UN member states several were related to ending discrimination. By accepting most of these recommendations, the Government gave its commitment to eliminate all forms of discrimination and agreed to enact into law the Bill on Caste-based Discrimination and Untouchability. The NDC and OHCHR welcome this important commitment and stand ready to support the government on concrete action needed to implement the UPR recommendations.
