ICJ Overview

The International Commission of Jurists (ICJ), a non-governmental organization registered and headquartered in Geneva, has worked on promoting and protecting human rights through the rule of law around the world since 1952 - and is composed of a Commission of 60 eminent judges, lawyers and legal academics from all regions of the world. The ICJ has been playing a crucial role in the development of international law through research, analysis, publication and by contributing the international and judicial norms.   The ICJ takes a multi-faceted approach to its human rights work by supporting victims and human rights defenders who seek effective remedies and reparation for rights violations, while simultaneously providing technical assistance and training to justice sector actors – including the judiciary, prosecution and police – so that they can effectively respond to this demand.  To achieve these goals, the ICJ has many tools at its disposal, including contributing to the development of international law and standards; human rights documentation and reporting; training and supporting judges, prosecutors and lawyers; strengthening mechanisms for accountability and access to justice; building the capacity of law enforcement personnel and justice sector actors; producing Practitioners’ Guides on international law and standards; and collaboration with local civil society and lawyers on national and international advocacy.

ICJ had been collaborating with local organizations in Nepal since 2005. During this period, ICJ has successfully implemented successive projects on human rights, rule of law, justice delivery for marginalized populations, human rights protections, accountability and transitional justice in partnership with the various national and local organizations and the Judiciary.

Thematic Areas of Focus in Nepal

The ICJ’s work will focus on following strategic objectives until 2025:

  • Defend and strengthen international institutions, instruments and standards on Rule of Law and human rights
  • Improve domestic implementation and compliance
  • Bolster the effectiveness and independence of judicial/legal system

The ICJ has a robust project cycle management system to ensure impact-driven implementation of its work in a way that ensures quality control, the learning of lessons, the coherence of its action across the globe, the buy-in to ICJ activities by local stakeholders and the sustainability of its work beyond discreet project activities.
