Being the first-of-its-kind research in Nepal, this research hopes to set the ground for further research in this area.
The main objectives of this research are as follows:
i.Aware the readers about the existence of intersex people and their issues.
ii.Identify legal gaps in the existing legislation to protect the human rights of intersex people.
This final report is based on a descriptive and empirical research design that concerns extensive desk reviews of literature concerning rights and issues of sexual and gender minorities.
As expected, research on Intersex people was given the utmost priority. Meanwhile, the normative base of the literature review is international human rights law.
Nepal’s constitutional and legal provisions in this area are examined from a protectionist perspective of intersex people.
During the course of writing this report, two intersex and one parent of an intersex child were interviewed. Their experiences give a holistic perspective on the situation of the intersex people of Nepal.
The CfC team and lawyer had a round of discussion and editing and then finalized the report.
Special thanks to, Prapoosa K.C., an attorney at Law in Green Law Associates for consulting and guiding the CfC team through the entire process.
