As Nepal continues to undergo a profound socio-economic and political transformation in order to meet the CPA and Constitution’s calls for peace, change and political and economic stability, Nepal’s ongoing peace process is anchored in the principles of democracy and access to justice as well as the fundamental human rights to equality, inclusion, and participation.

Against this backdrop the ‘Strengthening the Rule of Law and Human Rights Protection System in Nepal' Programme (the RoLHR Programme) focuses on supporting systemic changes in national legislative, policy and institutional frameworks and structures and on delivering tangible results at the local level.

Strengthening the Rule of Law and Human Rights Protection System in Nepal Programme(RoLHR), on entirety, aims to support systematic changes in national legislative, policy and institutional frameworks and structure to contribute to strengthen peace, development and human rights in Nepal.
