Background
UNDP Nepal is working with government agencies, national human rights institutions, and civil society organizations, to implement a Strengthening the Rule of Law and Human Rights Protection System in Nepal' Programme (the ROLHR ). The ROLHR programme aims to ensure that women and vulnerable groups are able to benefit from a protective legal framework and many recent improvements in the field of administration of justice. The ROLHR will do so through a 'three pronged' approach. First, it will develop the capacity of vulnerable groups to access rule of law institutions and assert and enjoy their rights and entitlements. Second, it will support rule of law institutions to be more responsive to increased demands for justice service delivery, including in a changed context. Third, it will support the civil society as well as human rights actors, institutions, and media to work together to ensure accountability for justice service delivery.
To strengthen the administration of justice, the ROLHR will support the development of a justice sector reform process, through which rule of law institutions will define their own priorities and identify measures to effectively address them. The Programme will support justice sector institutions to conduct pilots to identify 'what is needed' and 'what works', and then to institutionalize successful pilot initiatives throughout Nepal, including through the development of research, planning, monitoring and evaluation capacities.
To strengthen access to justice, the ROLHR will also support: the revision of laws and development of human resource capacities needed to implement penal legislation, anti-gender based violence, caste based discrimination, and corruption legislation; an 'affirmative action' law degree scholarship and internship scheme through which vulnerable groups currently not well represented in the legal profession can obtain a law degree and practical work experience; and the development of a relevant, accessible and integrated socio-legal aid scheme, which will provide support to enable vulnerable groups to assert and enjoy their rights in civil and criminal cases, including poverty-reducing entitlements such as inheritance, pensions, education allowances, health and legal services.
The programme will also support to strengthen the human rights system working in the area of transitional justice and capacity building part of the national institutions for example, National Women's Commission, and the National Dalit Commission.
The justice sector reform process will be implemented through the Justice Sector Coordination Committee network, to support policy dialogue, strategic planning, research, monitoring and evaluation, and pilot activities to improve the administration of justice across the sector. It is intended that this component will result in the development of a national strategy for justice sector reform in Nepal, supported by a multi-donor funding mechanism. The programme will support the Ministry of Law, Justice, Constituent Assembly and Parliamentary Affairs (MoLJCAPA) to lead reform of Nepal's legal aid landscape, towards the establishment of an integrated system which coordinates and regulates relevant, accessible socio-legal aid service provision throughout Nepal. The ROLHR Programme will support the MoLJCAPA to lead revision of legislation not aligned with the constitution and international human rights instruments to which the Government of Nepal is a State Party.
