The 11­ year conflict in Nepal had a terrible impact on the human rights of millions of Nepalese people. Dalits, being among the most vulnerable of Nepal’s people due to the widespread discrimination against them, often found themselves caught in the middle of the conflict and abused by both sides. The Jana Aandalon last year brought new hope to millions of Nepalese people, especially those who have been discriminated against and excluded from the State. The commitment in the Comprehensive Peace Agreement of 21 November to end discrimination and address its consequences offers hope that the State
will act to fulfill its legal obligations in this regard.
