Talking points for Richard Bennett Representative of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights in Nepal Delivered at the Release of OHCHR’s Handbook for Civil Society

OHCHR-Nepal is also looking forward to working closely with civil society, the NHRC and
the other national human rights institutions, the National Women’s Commission, National
Dalit Commission and the National Foundation for the Development of Indigenous
Nationalities, in relation to a $300,000 grant fund that is one component of the OHCHR
Transitional Justice Project funded from the UN Peace Fund. Andrew will give you further
details later, but I would like to say that this fund is one way to ensure that civil society is able to actively participate in the TJ process. In addition, there will be an opportunity for smaller victims groups working at the local level to implement targeted projects in support of effective TJ.
OHCHR is following closely political developments in Nepal and any impact that they
have on the peace process. As the High Commissioner said in her speech to the Human
Rights Council last week, OHCHR-Nepal staff have a role to play during this sensitive
phase, by monitoring and reporting on human rights conditions, as well as in supporting
the Government, national institutions, and civil society in their efforts to protect human
rights.
