Human Rights in Nepal One year after the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (December 2007).
Abstract:
Immediately after the April 2006 ceasefire and the restoration of the House of Representatives, significant progress was made in re-establishing democratic rights and in ending serious conflict-related abuses. The Comprehensive Peace Agreement was signed on 21 November and consolidated a series of commitments to human rights made in previous agreements. The commitments include many of the Government of Nepal’s obligations under international law to respect, promote and ensure human rights of all persons within Nepal without discrimination. The CPA, in its preamble, commits all signatories “to create an atmosphere where the Nepali people can enjoy their civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights and … to ensuring that such rights are not violated under any circumstances in the future.” (7.1.2). These include ending discrimination, arbitrary detention, torture, killings and disappearances. The CPA separately mandates OHCHR and the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) to monitor the implementation of the human rights provisions within the Agreement and requires all parties to collaborate with OHCHR in providing information and implementing recommendations. #ComprehensivePeaceAgreement #SignedOn21November #Rights #InternationalLaw
