Timetable now available for next round of UPR Info Pre-sessions

UPR Info is organising its eleventh round of Pre-sessions to discuss the human rights situation of the States to be reviewed at the 23rd UPR Working Group session (2-13 November 2015): Australia; Austria; Georgia; Lebanon; Mauritania; Micronesia; Myanmar; Nauru; Nepal; Oman; Rwanda; Saint Kitts and Nevis; Saint Lucia; and Sao Tome and Principe.

The UPR 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.

The pre-session will take place from 7 to 9 October 2015 in Geneva, Switzerland, at the Centre International de Conférences Genève, 17 rue de Varembé, Room 5.  The programme is available here.
