Mid-Term Report submissions increasing

Benin and Spain submitted their Mid-Term Reports in the last few days, following Chile's submission earlier last week and raising the number of reports by three only in one week.

There seems to be a recent trend among States to publish Mid-Term Reports, a development which is warmly welcomed by UPR Info. We have repeatedly emphasised the importance of the follow-up of the UPR recommendations' implementation, and we strongly believe that the production of such reports significantly contributes to the strengthening of the UPR mechanism.

UPR Info would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all the States that have submitted similar reports for their commitment to the UPR. It helps undoubtedly to achieve the goal of transparency aimed at by the Human Rights Council.
