National Alliance for Human Rights and Social Justice (Human Rights Alliance), Nepal is a Coalition of human rights organisations dedicated to a cause of freedom, human rights, justice and peace in Nepal. It was established in 1999 by the initiation of some leading human rights organisations in order for bringing together like-minded human rights organisations to build a nationwide human rights movement conducive for all to realise their basic rights. The organisation envisages a world where people would assert and enjoy all human rights, and thereby experience peace and prosperity. The mandate of the organisation is to advocate for a society that is free from violence, torture, exploitation, oppression and injustice.
