Abstract

This article examines the place of economic, social, and cultural rights in Nepal’s ongoing constitution-drafting process, and analyses the way that ESC rights have (and have not) been protected in its earlier constitutions. Further, the article considers the role that ESC rights and their protection in the new constitution play as part of a comprehensive approach to transitional justice and a lasting peace in Nepal.

Keywords: Nepal, human rights, economic rights, land rights, constitutions, Asia, transitional justice
