In November 2020, the Geneva Academy, in collaboration with UPR Info, is offering an intensive course designed for staff of NGOs; research institutes; UN agencies and other national and international organizations; members of NHRIs, and representatives of governments and academia.
- UPR Info is pleased to invite you to a free training webinar on Mid-Term Reporting to the UPR. This webinar will equip UPR stakeholders - States, civil society organisations (CSOs), and national human rights institutions (NHRIs) - on how to promote accountability and action between one review and the next.
- The Universal Periodic Review (UPR) has produced a number of new initiatives at national level to implement recommendations aimed at improving human rights enjoyment. Valuable lessons can be drawn from this practice and can be applied to the work of the Treaty Body (TB) System
- As part of UPR Info’s strategy for the second phase of its In-country programme (ICP), UPR Info has decided, as directed by its Board, to close UPR Info Africa office based in Nairobi. This step has been taken to reflect an organizational change of strategy that will ensure the sustainability and national ownership of UPR activities and allow us to strengthen partnerships with governments, national human rights institutions, parliaments and civil society organisations.
