New Videos on UPR Engagement by AI and UNESCO
Amnesty International and UNESCO have partnered up to support Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) in engaging with the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) mechanism to promote freedom of expression. To assist with the UPR engagement, they produced six videos offering guidance on how to prepare a submission and conduct advocacy at the different stages of the UPR, as well as tips on working in partnership and monitoring UPR recommendations' implementation at the national level.
The videos are part of a wider set of resources provided by Amnesty International and UNESCO such as Guidelines on civil society engagement in the UPR, focusing specifically on the issue of freedom of expression, as well as a Factsheet on the drafting of smart recommendations, produced in collaboration with UPR Info. The videos, along with the other resources provided, aim to strengthen freedom of expression in the UPR mechanism and enable greater use of the mechanism to promote human rights.
