What is the Universal Periodic Review ?

The Universal Periodic Review (UPR) is a unique, state-driven peer review mechanism created by the UN General Assembly in 2006. As part of the UPR process, all 193 member states of the UN voluntarily undergo a cyclical review of their human rights situation every four and a half years. Member States under review receive recommendations aimed at addressing human rights issues in the country. States can either support (commit to implement) or note (take note of without committing to implement) these recommendations. The key stakeholders in this process are Member States, National Human Rights Institutions, UN Agencies and Civil Society Organisations. 
The process is comprised of three key stages:
  • The review in at the Human Rights Council in Geneva of the human rights situation in the state under review
  • The implementation between two reviews of the recommendations made to the state under review
  • The assessment at the next review of the implementation of those recommendations and developments in the country since the previous review
