Part I of this Note provides a brief political history of Nepal since the mid-eighteenth century; defines the concept of transitional justice; and explores the international law of remedy, reparations, and compensation. Part II focuses on the right to individual compensation in order to determine which human rights violations trigger a state's legal obligation to compensate victims, and then applies that right to the transitional justice context. Finally, Part III proposes the design of an individual compensation program in which Nepal, and other transitional states, can fulfill legal obligations while simultaneously working toward peace, democracy, and development.
