Wedged between China and India, and comprising the highest peaks of the Himalayas, which have always offered to people fleeing the protection of its high valleys, Nepal surprises by the diversity of its people. The successive waves of migration of Mongoloid people of Asia Tibeto-Burman and Caucasian populations from the plains of India to Indo-European languages have created a society of multiple ethnicities, which have come to live in harmony. This rectangle of 600 km long and 150 miles wide, containing from south to north, one end of the Gangetic plain and the Himalayan highlands and finally some parts of adjoining Tibet, offers an impressive variety of landscapes. Despite its abundant natural resources and its geographical location, Nepal strikes its visitors with the spectacle of people pushed into a sub-global development. Nepal is among the poorest countries in the world. Long folded in on itself, following the humiliating treaty imposed by the British in 1816, which deprived the kingdom of a great part of its past conquests, the small Himalayan kingdom was not opened until 1951, revealing an almost medieval situation. The country's openness to the outside world was accompanied by a liberalization of the dying political system, under pressure from the Nepali Congress. The dream of a new democratic system had to wait after an unsuccessful attempt in 1959, and was finally realized in 1990. In the context of all-out violation of human rights, it is appropriate to look to actors for human rights, their weaknesses, their strengths and how they interact, and finally to understand what role each can play in addressing these challenges.
