  • [01] Commission supports restoration of peace and democracy in Nepal

    The European Commission is underlining its support to restore peace and democracy to Nepal by providing € 12 million in assistance to address human rights issues and to contribute to a settlement of the conflict. €7 million has been approved for a ‘conflict mitigation’ project that will strengthen the National Human Rights Commission and the Supreme Court. This will increase the institutional capacity to protect people’s rights and to uphold the rule of law in the conflict-affected country. The funding will also help provide legal support to those who need it, through the Nepal Bar Association. An additional € 5 million is being allocated to an international human rights monitoring mission. This will raise awareness of, and capacity to implement, national and international humanitarian law, and provide an independent investigation into any abuses of human rights. The monitoring mission, which will rely on over 100 international and local observers, based throughout the country, is supported by the international community and will be managed by the UN Office for the High Commissioner for Human Rights.

    [02] Commission helps to promote stability and security in Central Asia

    The European Commission is providing €66 million in assistance to Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan to help fight poverty, strengthen their national institutions, and to further enhance regional co-operation. The assistance forms part of a long term programme of EU support designed to promote stability, security and economic development in the region. The €66 funds will be used to support ongoing institutional, legal and administrative reforms in Central Asia starting next year(2006).
