In October 2010, on the 10th anniversary of U.N. Security Council Resolution 1325 on women, peace and security, Secretary of State Clinton announced that the U.S. government was developing its National Action Plan (NAP) to “accelerate the implementation of Resolution 1325 across our government and with our partners in civil society.” Based on its July 2011 report A Decade Lost: Locating Gender in U.S. Counter-Terrorism, CHRGJ has briefed the key agencies working on the NAP—USAID, Department of State, and Department of Defense—to ensure that the USG develops and implements its NAP in ways that promote rather than undermine gender equality.

Nepal’s Constituent Assembly (CA) must immediately address critical gaps in proposals for its new Constitution and ensure the fundamental rights of all Nepalese people, said the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice (CHRGJ) at New York University School of Law in a new report released today. The report’s release coincides with the CA’s preparation of the first full draft of the new Constitution based on proposals from Thematic Committees of the CA.

The report, Rights Within Reach: Securing Equality and Human Rights in Nepal’s New Constitution, analyzes proposals for Nepal’s new Constitution and provides Nepalese lawmakers with a clear roadmap for ensuring that the country lives up to its human rights obligations. This includes recommendations for translating Nepal’s commitment to eradicating caste-based discrimination against Dalits—a group that has faced more than 2,000 years of systematic exclusion and discrimination—into a legal reality.
