The violence in Kapilvastu and its aftermath of humanitarian crisis and public security vacuum reflect the dangerous fragility of the situation in the Terai. Addressing these challenges is essential to create the conditions for a credible Constituent Assembly election and long term stability and peace in Nepal.
“The peace process has not yet taken root in many parts of rural Nepal,” says Arjuna Parakrama, of UNMIN's civil affairs team. “Establishing mechanisms of effective and fundamentally just humanitarian support and to identify effective ways to prevent violence and manage tensions in the future.
Richard Bennett, Representative of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, was in Kapilvastu days after the violence, meeting with local authorities, families of victims and displaced people.
UNMIN and OHCHR monitoring work in the districts aims at engaging with local authorities, civil society and community members to assess the human rights and public security situation, and to support local initiatives to foster dialogue and the peaceful resolution of tensions and differences. UNMIN civil affairs teams in particular seek to support groups working to foster dialogue and cooperation at the local level, while OHCHR investigates violations of human rights.
