Annual report of the United Nations High Commissioner
for Human Rights and reports of the Office of the
High Commissioner and the Secretary-General
This is the sixth and final report of the High Commissioner for Human Rights to the Human Rights Council on the human rights situation and the activities of her Office in Nepal. The Government of Nepal has decided not to renew the mandate of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights to operate a field presence in Nepal beyond 8 December 2011. The report reviews the human rights situation in Nepal during 2011 in relation to 10 priority human rights areas and major developments. Although many challenges remain, Nepal's peace process continues to hold promise with some notable progress towards successfully concluding the peace process. OHCHR is ready to find appropriate modalities to continue to support Nepal in advancing the human rights agenda.
