PDF File Size: 98 KB | Download   
The Representative of the Secretary-General on the human rights of internally displaced persons undertook a mission to Nepal from 13 to 22 April 2005. He concluded that Nepal faces a serious problem of conflict-induced displacement. While this situation does not amount to a humanitarian crisis in the usual sense, there are reasons for grave concerns about the humanitarian and human rights situation of many internally displaced persons that need to be urgently addressed. The reasons leading to this displacement are complex. While Maoist violence may seem to be the principal cause for displacement in Nepal today, it is not the only one. The main problems and needs faced by internally displaced persons in Nepal are security and protection; discrimination; food, shelter and health; access to education for children; documentation; sexual abuse and increased domestic violence; risk of increased female prostitution; risk of increasing child labour; lack of protection of property rights; and denial of voting and electoral rights.
