Who We Are
UPR Info is a non-profit, non-governmental organisation (NGO) with headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, and a regional office for Africa in Nairobi, Kenya. The organisation’s goal is to ensure all stakeholders seize the opportunity to engage in the Universal Periodic Review (UPR), an effective mechanism to advance human rights on the ground. To achieve this goal, UPR Info aims to support the inclusive and effective participation of stakeholders throughout the UPR cycles, including United Nations (UN) Member States, NGOs, National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) and civil society, and to raise awareness of the process by providing these critical actors with capacity-building tools to impact the process.
Founded in February 2008, UPR Info has held Special Consultative status with ECOSOC since 2012. Since the inception of the Review, UPR Info remains the only organisation in the world that focuses specifically on the UPR process. UPR Info addresses all human rights issues and all countries without discrimination or politicization, and this extensive experience is widely recognized by actors including UN agencies, Member States, NGOs, NHRIs and academics. As an impartial, non-advocacy NGO, UPR Info has the rare opportunity to work together with civil society and governments, and occupies a niche by bringing these actors together and building trust among them.
