The Nepal Conflict Report.
Produced by the The United Nations’ Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).
Between 1996 and 2006, an internal conflict between the Government of Nepal and the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) (CPN (Maoist)) left at least 13,000 people dead and 1,300 missing. By signing the Comprehensive Peace Accord on 21 November 2006, the Government of Nepal and the CPN (Maoist) committed to establishing the truth about the conduct of the war and to ensuring the victims of the conflict receive both justice and reparations. To that end, the Comprehensive Peace Accord references commitments to form two transitional justice mechanisms: a Truth and Reconciliation Commission and a Commission on Disappeared Persons.

Accompanying the 233-page Report’s release is a database of some 30,000 documents – known as the Transitional Justice Reference Archive – which aims to provide Nepali institutions and civil society with the means to kick-start the process of seeking truth, justice, and reconciliation for the crimes committed during the 1996-2006 conflict.
The Archive, according to the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), records “up to 9,000 serious violations of international human rights law or international humanitarian law may have been committed during the decade-long conflict… However, at the time of writing, no one in Nepal has been prosecuted in a civilian court for a serious conflict-related crime.”
