In its most recent report in 2004, the UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination called for action based on the Government of Nepal’s Report of the same year. The Committee made recommendations on 13 areas of concern, including that the Government enforce special measures to guarantee to members of historically marginalized groups the right to participate in elections, to vote and stand for election, and to have due representation in government, legislative bodies and
the judiciary.

Legislation prohibiting discrimination based on “untouchability” and ongoing distribution of citizenship certificates are positive steps in responding to such concerns. Ensuring fair representation of Dalits, Madheshis and Janajatis in the upcoming Constituent Assembly elections would be an important signal that the State is serious about making way for all Nepalese to exercise their rights as full citizens, and partners, in this country.
