Conflict Victims' Society for Justice (CVSJ) Nepal was established in the early 2000s by a group of victims who sought to redress abuses committed against them by state security forces and the then Maoist rebels. CVSJ was formally registered as a non-governmental organization on August 25, 2008. Fearing reprisals from the security forces and the Maoists, the victims started travelling in groups to register their complaints and document their cases. During the height of the conflict, CVSJ began to form a network of victims throughout the country, and its members would accompany each other to police stations to file reports of abuses. The CVSJ network enabled those who were afraid of reprisals from state security forces and the Maoists to band together and advocate local and federal institutions for their human rights. Following the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) in 2006, CVSJ-Nepal established its first victim pressure group, which aimed to exert sustained pressure on the Government of Nepal to register and investigate cases of human rights abuses committed during the conflict. CVSJ has promulgated and submitted petitions to government agencies concerned, and has been at the fore-front in advocacy, documentation, awareness campaigning, lobbying, and human rights trainings. It has expanded its outreach to 55 districts out of 75 and has formed 300 grassroots-level committees throughout Nepal. It has covered all the regions of the country geographically located from eastern to far-western. CVSJ operates at six levels: It has a 13-member General Assembly and Central level office in the Nepal capitol, Kathmandu, and committees in the regional, zonal, district and village development committee (VDC) levels. CVSJ has 33 numbers of members, each of whom pays 50 Nepali rupees to become a member.CVSJ is currently led by Janak Bahadur Raut, President, who has been leading this organization since its formal establishment. Also, Mr. Janak Bahadur Raut was nominated by the Government of Nepal (GoN) as a member of the Task Force of Experts for recommending the GoN for drafting bills for TJ mechanisms. CVSJ-Nepal is a victim-centric, victim-led organization that aims to mobilize and empower victims to do lobbying before the GoN to deliver justice and to end impunity. CVSJ became a Council Member of the Asian Federation Against Involuntary Disappearances (AFAD) in 2009, and has remained an active member.
