Nepal: Children caught in the conflict

Index Number: ASA 31/054/2005

This report describes some of the most serious human rights abuses being experienced by children in the context of the conflict in Nepal and highlights the failure of both the security forces and the CPN (Maoist) to respect children’s rights. It calls on both parties to take urgent measures to minimise the impact of the conflict on children’s lives. The report considers children in the contexts of being killed, detained and tortured; of sexual violence; education, abduction and recruitment; and children from fractured families.
