Nepal: IHRICON celebrates Week of Action and 10 year anniversary

Over 80 journalists, government officials, academics, NGO representatives and members of the public attended a conference and book launch in Kathmandu organised by the Institute of Human rights Communication Nepal (IHRICON). During this successful event, which not only marked the Week of Action but also celebrated IHRICON’s tenth anniversary, Gauri Pradhan of the National Human Rights Commission proposed the creation of a national research group including civil society organisations to monitor the use and impact of small arms in the country and expressed his commitment to support such an initiative.
