ImplementatIon Status of National Human Rights Commission and Universal PeriodIc Review RecommendatIons on Child Rights
PDF File Size: 743 KB | Download   
This document contains implementation status of children related recommendations made to the Government of Nepal by the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) mechanism of the Human Rights Council and by National Human Rights Commission Nepal. The non-implementation of many recommendations on child rights has increased the level of frustration among victims and their kin as they are unable to access justice for a long tie. Despite increased response of the Government of Nepal to awarding compensation to victims, regrettably, none of the perpetrators indicted have been subject to any prosecution. Nepal was reviewed by the Human Rights Council under its UPR mechanism in
January 2011. Several States made recommendations to the Government of Nepal to improve the realization of human rights in Nepal. More than a quarter of all recommendations were related to children. The Government of Nepal has accepted 31 out of 34 children related recommendations. The report examines the extent to which those recommendations have been implemented. More than two years after the review in the HRC, the implementation of those recommendations is quite weak. NHRC has also made several recommendations directly or indirectly related to children and this report also looks at their implementation status.
