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.
