PDF File Size: 361 KB | Download   
The National Human Right Commission of Nepal (NHRC) is the constitutional, independent and autonomous human rights institution established for promotion and protection of human rights in Nepal. The role of the NHRC is to ensure the respect, protection and promotion as well as effective implementation of human rights; and it has taken a special interest in the rights of LGBTI people. This Report was prepared for the Regional National Human Rights Institutions Project on Inclusion, the Right to Health, and Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SOGI), implemented by the International Development Law Organization (IDLO) and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) in partnership with the Asia Pacific Forum and SAARCLAW (the Regional NHRI SOGI Project). The Project was designed to build an understanding of the response of National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) in South Asia and Southeast Asia to SOGI-related human rights issues. The Project advocates for greater employment of the Yogyakarta Principles; builds upon the outcomes of the South Asia Roundtable Dialogue: Legal and Policy Barriers to the HIV Response (Kathmandu, 2011); and supports the commitments of the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) under Resolutions 66/10 and 67/9. The Project is a direct response to the recommendations of the Report of the Asia Pacific Forum (APF) Advisory Council of Jurists: Human Rights, Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity, 2010(ACJ Report). Specifically, the ACJ Report recommends that NHRIs:undertake an internal dialogue on issues relating to the human rights of people of diverse SOGI and build the capacity of the institution to understand the issues and to react appropriately; build relationships with people of diverse SOGI, including civil society organizations, in order to inform the work of the NHRI; and research, identify and document human rights violations against people of diverse SOGI, and the impact of discriminatory laws and practices. In participating in the Regional NHRI SOGI Project, the National Human Rights Commission of Nepal took part in two dialogues with representatives of the SOGI community with a view to building NHRC representatives’ sensitivity to, and understanding of the rights and specific vulnerabilities of people of diverse SOGI; as well as a series of internal meetings and research activities.
