The process of making a new Constitution for Nepal offers an unparalleled
opportunity to consider ways of strengthening the human rights legal framework. It allows the opportunity to fashion solutions which encapsulate the aspirations and commitments of all segments of the Nepali community.This programme will help to generate meaningful suggestions for strengthening human rights elements as well as enforcement mechanisms, including an independent and authoritative judiciary, in the new constitution.Strong accountability mechanisms are vital, including a strong, independent judiciary with sufficient power to hold the government to account, or in the form of institutions like national human rights institutions, such as NHRC, that can adjudicate complaints of human rights violations. In international human rights language, we speak of the responsibility of the State to provide an effective remedy for violations.
