ICJ report: economic, social and cultural rights and the new constitution of Nepal

Centuries of entrenched practices of discrimination and exclusion of disadvantaged groups in Nepal have led to a demand to bring about greater inclusion, and ensure greater justice through a human rights framework.

These aspirations of Nepali people were voiced during the Jana Andolan II, as well as were reflected in the Comprehensive Peace Agreement 2006, and the Interim Constitution 2007. ICJ report discusses the advantages of constitutionalisation of economic, social and cultural rights as fundamental rights in the highest law of the land, thereby upholding its commitment to realizing all human rights of all Nepali people, as well as serve as an effective means to ensure social justice for all Nepali people.
