The 4th cycle of UPR will start in November 2022. The UPR process provides for the participation of all relevant national actors, including non-governmental organizations (NGOs), national human rights institutions (NHRIs) and human rights defenders.

With the deadline for stakeholder submission due on the 31st of March 2022 (for the 41st  Working Group session), UPR Info, in partnership with Human Rights Measurement Initiative (HRMI), organizes two free webinars to equip human rights defenders with key information and guidance to write effective reports for the UPR of UN Member States. These online sessions will also offer good practices and new online tools to strengthen the submissions by civil society.

The webinars will integrate the new guidelines published by the OHCHR!

The guidelines recall the importance of focusing on, inter alia, the implementation of accepted recommendations and the developments of the human rights situation in the State under review. Civil society is encouraged to include in their written contributions information on the follow-up to the preceding review, as well as on developments or relevant issues not addressed during previous reviews.

The webinars are open to all human rights advocates from the 14 countries that will be reviewed at  41st UPR Working Group:Bahrain, Ecuador, Tunisia, Morocco, Indonesia, Finland, United Kingdom, India, Brazil, Philippines, Algeria, Poland, Netherlands and South Africa.

There will be a special focus on Brazil and the United Kingdom. Please invite anyone you know who is working on a UPR report.
