Nepali Voices: Perceptions of Truth, Justice, Reconciliation, Reparations and the Transition in Nepal

International Center for Transitional Justice, Occasional Paper, 2008

Various transitional-justice mechanisms were included in Nepals Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA), signed in November 2006. The International Center for Transitional Justice (ICTJ), together with Advocacy Forum (AF), decided to carry out a study on victims perceptions of issues such as truth, justice, reparations, reconciliation, and the general transition in Nepal. This study seeks to contribute to the debate about the transitional process in Nepal, bringing to the discussion the perceptions and opinions of the people who were directly affected by violence during the conflict. The ICTJ and AF consider it important to bring the voice of the victims into a debate involving all sectors of society.
