Public interest litigation (general)
About this resource:
In Nepal, following a successful case brought by victims’ families, the Supreme Court ordered the government to change its policy of refusing to investigate past practices of enforced disappearances and provide remedies to victims. It also ordered the government to establish a truth commission to investigate instances of enforced disappearance. This created legal reform which benefitted society as a whole, not just the families who brought the case.
