The pre-sessions will take place from 6 to 9 October 2014, at the Centre International de Conférences Genève, 17 rue de Varembé, Room 5. CSOs and NHRIs interested in participating are kindly request to fill in this form and send it to presessions@upr-info.org.

The deadline to apply to participate in the pre-sessions is the 1st of July 2014.

The UPR Pre-sessions bring together Permanent Missions, National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) and Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) to discuss the human rights situation of States one month prior to their review at the UPR Working Group. The Pre-sessions offer permanent delegations the opportunity to be informed on the status of implementation of recommendations made during the previous review, while providing space for civil society to influence the process by lobbying several delegations at once.
