UPR Info published an article in the March issue of UNSpecial, the United Nations magazine. The article provides an analysis of UPR recommendations and details the different activities of UPR Info on this issue.
THE UPR AND ITS RECOMMENDATIONS
The President of the Human Rights Council, H.E. Mr. Alex Van Meeuwen, asked the three States under Review this morning to provide answers on recommendations left pending. He stated that according to Resolution 5/1, the SuR must identify the accepted recommendations and take note of the others. On this basis, he requested Eritrea, Cyprus and the Dominican Republic to conform with the procedures and give responses.
We are launching the first database of UPR recommendations. This unique feature will allow to access and search all recommendations through eight different categories (State under review, Recommending state, regional group and organisation, response, UPR session, thematic issue and an exclusive category looking into the type of action contained in each recommendation) and fine-tune research by combining criteria (from the same filter or by different filters) and searching for key words.
