Registration now open for next round of UPR Info Pre-sessions!

UPR Info is organising its next round of Pre-sessions to discuss the human rights situation of the States to be reviewed at the 30th UPR Working Group session (May 2018): Azerbaijan; Bangladesh; Burkina Faso; Cameroon; Canada; Cape Verde; Colombia; Cuba; Djibouti; Germany; Russian Federation; Turkmenistan; Tuvalu; and Uzbekistan.

The Pre-sessions will take place from 10 to 13 April 2018 in Geneva, Switzerland, at the Palais des Nations, Room XXII. CSOs wishing to take the floor are asked to fill in the registration form and return it by

11 February 2018 to presessions@upr-info.org.

The UPR Info Pre-sessions bring together Permanent Missions, National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) and Civil Society Organisations (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.
