Lawyers’ Association for Human Rights of Nepalese Indigenous Peoples (LAHURNIP)

Lawyers’ Association for Human Rights of Nepalese Indigenous Peoples (LAHURNIP) is a pioneer organisation of human rights lawyers working for the rights of Indigenous Peoples (IPs) in Nepal.  LAHURNIP was established in 1995 by the professional Indigenous lawyers with objectives of ensuring social justice through legal service including Pro bono service in collective rights cases. It has primary objectives of promoting, protecting and defending human rights and fundamental freedoms of IPs in Nepal.

It envisions a situation where IPs are equally participating in the decision making process,  and are valued, respected and listened to, where they feel safe, secure and they can develop their the fullest potential, equal rights and dignity simultaneously in democracy.

LAHURNIP is promoting for better implementation of ILO convention No. 169, United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) inter alia other international human rights instruments that Nepal is a party to. It has been working to create solidarity to the regional and international IPs' rights promotional movements.

Meanwhile, LAHURNIP is supporting Indigenous communities to manifest their rights, particularly those who are affected by the projects in their land, territories and natural resources, in laws and policies.
