Nepal’s new constitution was adopted in September 2015, but violent protests over the lack of greater inclusion for minority communities have stalled efforts to enforce rights protections. Successive governments have made little progress on accountability for abuses during the 1996-2006 civil war, which claimed more than 13,000 lives. The two transitional justice commissions that were established have been plagued by a lack of transparency and compliance with international law. The government has failed to disburse relief funds to victims of the devastating 2015 earthquakes. Poverty and lack of access to education have led to high rates of child marriage.
