A two-day conference on “Human Rights and Access to Justice at the Local Level” was organized from April 6-7, 2023. The meeting brought together members from both the rural municipality and municipal judicial committees resulting in a fruitful debate of critical topics on access to justice and human rights.
Hon. Mohanraj Bhattarai (Principal Judge, Kabhre District Court), Hon. Prof. Dr. Surya Dhungel (Commissioner, NHRC), and Hon. Top Bahadur Magar (Chairperson, NHRC) delivered introductory remarks, followed by closing words of the opening session from Prof. Dr. Bhola Thapa, Vice-Chancellor, Kathmandu University.
We feel that this conference has contributed to the development of a space for debate, understanding, and collaboration among judicial committees and the Kathmandu University School of Law. We would like to express our deepest appreciation to all of the guests, keynote speakers, attendees, and organizers who helped to make this conference a success.
