UPR Info's Advisory Board member and long time collaborator Prof. Edward McMahon, from the University of Vermont, is publishing an evaluation on the UPR, "The Universal Periodic Review: A Work in Progress", with the support of the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES).
This evaluation analyses the first UPR cycle, evaluates the recommendations stemming from it, highlights the regional characteristics and provides a range of recommendations to further strengthen the UPR mechanism.
The publication will be launched at a side event organised by FES and UPR Info on Thursday 13 September from 2 to 4pm, room 27, Palais des Nations. A discussion will take place on its findings with the participation of H.E. Ambassador Omar Hilale, Permanent Representative of the Mission of Morocco and Roland Chauville, Executive Director of UPR Info.
