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

UPR Info is organising its twelfth round of Pre-sessions to discuss the human rights situation of the States to be reviewed at the 24th UPR Working Group session (January/February 2016): Belgium; Denmark; Estonia; Latvia; Mozambique; Namibia; Niger; Palau; Paraguay; Seychelles; Sierra Leone; Singapore; Somalia; and Solomon Islands.

The Pre-sessions will take place from 14 to 17 December 2015 in Geneva, Switzerland, at the Centre International de Conférences Genève, 17 rue de Varembé, Room 5. CSOs wishing to take the floor are asked to fill in the registration form and return it by

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.
