PDF File Size: 27 KB | Download   
A team from the OHCHR Indigenous and Minorities Unit (IMU) of the OHCHR
headquarters in Geneva completed a week-long mission to Nepal, after having met
with indigenous and minority groups in Kathmandu and the regions.

The purpose of the two regional workshops was to examine in more detail the issues confronting some of the most marginalized communities in Nepal, and to discuss ways of addressing this discrimination with activists and members of those communities.
