Advocacy Forum

Advocacy forum (AF) is a leading non-profit, non-governmental organization dedicated to promoting the rule of law and upholding international human rights standards in Nepal. Established in 2001, AF takes proactive measures to combat the pervasive culture of impunity that has been thriving for decades in the country by systematically documenting human rights violations/abuses, filing lawsuits against perpetrators, lobbying the state for institutional and legal reforms, providing psychosocial and legal aid to victims and monitoring government detention facilities. Our approach is victim-centric and we act as a catalytic force to bring the voices of the victims to the fore.

We have developed a highly sophisticated database system to record all the information we collect. The analytical data thus procured is published and presented to national and international audiences presenting evidence for the reform necessary to enhance the delivery capacity of the justice system in Nepal. We regularly work within the international human rights realm, engaging legal mechanisms and working in tandem with Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, the International Commission of Jurists, the Asian Human Rights Commission and World Organizations against Torture. Our role was instrumental in the establishment of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) in Nepal. AF, with the help of these and other agencies concerned, has placed Nepal at the forefront for significant human rights attention.
