Discrimination takes many forms, affecting social, cultural and economic rights as well as civil and political rights: for example, access to water and food, to housing, to education and work opportunities, to citizenship and the protection and rights this affords, to justice and the protection of the law.
The recent events in Nepalgunj have highlighted the need to recognize and address issues of exclusion through dialogue and a greater understanding of these problems.
In Nepal, as in many other parts of the world, there is a direct link between discrimination and poverty for millions of people. Discrimination creates obstacles for people in securing access to opportunities and resources, and in Nepal this has meant that many development initiatives bypass some of the groups most affected by discrimination, and most in need of those opportunities and resources.
Discrimination and exclusion deny individuals and communities the simple human dignity that is the basis of equality and the fundamental foundation of all human rights. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, in its Preface, emphasises “the inherent dignity and ... the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family”.
