Dignity is, of course, not one of the human rights laid out in the Declaration, nor in the human rights instruments that have come into force in the past 60 years. However, it is difficult to imagine living a life of dignity without that life including protection of one’s human rights. But that has been the case for Nepal’s Dalit communities and for the other historically marginalized groups in this country – their human rights have not been promoted and protected equally with those of other Nepalis.

This, of course, is one of the major challenges of the peace process. The new Nepal that was envisaged in the interim Constitution and the Comprehensive Peace Agreement is described as a country where the human rights of all will be equally promoted and respected. In particular, Dalits, Madheshis, Janajatis/Adivasis, disabled persons, those belonging to sexual minorities and people living in remote areas will see their right to participate realized in upcoming elections, in the permanent Constitution that still needs to
be drafted and in other State and non-State institutions.
