REDRESS, in collaboration with the Advocacy Forum, the Asian Human Rights Commission and the World Organization against Torture, made this submission to the UN General Assembly concerning the November 2015 Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of Nepal. Our submission addresses key areas of concern for human rights in Nepal, including continued impunity for serious human rights violations committed during the 1996-2006 internal armed conflict and since; serious flaws in the transitional justice law and transitional justice processes; Nepal’s failure to effectively respond to sexual violence; the continued practice of torture, and the ineffectiveness of the National Human Rights Commission.
