CHRGJ urges Nepal to include Dalit rights in new constitution


The Center for Human Rights and Global Justice (CHRGJ) released "Recasting Justice," a report urging Nepal to include the protection of the rights of Dalits—a group discriminated against based on caste—in its new constitution. Rights include: citizenship; nondiscrimination; civil and political rights; economic, social, and cultural rights, and the right to be free from torture. Professor Smita Narula, CHRGJ faculty director, appeared extensively on HDNet's Dan Rather Reports in a half-hour segment on the extreme prejudice faced by Dalits. April 28, 2008
