Annual Report of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights and Reports of the Office of the High Commissioner and the Secretary-General (Tenth session, Agenda item 2)
PDF File Size: 85 KB | Download   
The present report covers the human rights situation and the activities of the office of the High Commissioner in Nepal (OHCHR Nepal) during 2008. There have been very significant political developments since the report submitted by my predecessor last year, including the election of a Constituent Assembly, the declaration of a Republic and the formation of a new Government, as well as legislative and institutional reforms aimed at strengthening human rights protection. Challenges remain with regard to addressing the root causes of the conflict, which include impunity and deep-seated inequalities and discrimination. Priorities must also include improving public security and the protection of the population’s rights to life, liberty and security which are threatened by the proliferation of armed groups operating in the Terai (plains).
