PDF File Size: 576 KB | Download   
Domestication of international instruments, broadly speaking, is a process of giving effect to the provisions enumerated in the instruments to which the state is a party at the national arena. This is also a part of fulfilling obligations accruing from such instruments. Article 132 (2) of the Interim Constitution of Nepal, 2007 and Section 9 (2) of the Human Rights Commission Act, 1997 have explicitly mandated the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) to review implementation status of the International Human Rights Treaties to which Nepal is a party and make recommendation to the Government of Nepal to take necessary actions for effective implementation of human rights enshrined in such treaties. Nepal ratified the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights 1966 (ICCPR) in 14 May 1991. As a state party, Nepal has international obligation to respect, protect and fulfill all human rights enunciated in the ICCPR. It shall take executive, legislative, judicial and other measures for effective implementation of the ICCPR. This research report, entitled "A STUDY OF THE DOMESTICATION STATUS OF ICCPR IN NEPAL", has aimed to review measures undertaken by Nepal government to ensure effective implementation of each of the articles of the ICCPR. It has primarily focused on domestic constitutional/legal settings, institutional arrangements, policies and judicial decisions that are essential for promotion and protection of human rights under the ICCPR. Number of recommendations has been made to take necessary actions to ensure effective implementation of the provisions of the ICCPR in Nepal.
