Stigmatization of Dalits in Access to Water and Sanitation in India

by mudassar — last modified 2013-02-17 20:06

*This submission was made by Hannah Johns at the Human Rights Council in September2012 The UN Special Rapporteur on the human right to safe drinking water and sanitation, Ms. Catarina de Albuqueque has multiple times shown that she is committed to addressing discrimination against Dalits and the situation of sanitation workers, including manual scavengers, in connection with her mandate. Two recent developments show this commitment: a call for input to a thematic study on stigmatization in access to water and sanitation, and the publication of a book on good practices (based on last year’s thematic study). IDSN and members have been involved in both processes, where there is a clear focus on Dalits and the consequences of caste discrimination. Hannah from NCDHR prepared a submission on the stigmatization of Dalits in India (see link below). The issue of stigmatization was discussed in the Human Rights Council in September, where Ms. de Albuqueque presented her report on the stigma experienced by many vulnerable and excluded groups, including Dalits.
