UPR Info and the international community welcome the UPR third cycle
March saw the 34th meeting of the Human Rights Council take place, in Geneva, during which the second cycle of the UPR formally concluded. UPR Info monitored extensively the UPR Session 26 adoptions which took place, on March 16 and 17, during this session of the HRC. During the General Debate that followed UPR Info took the floor to make an intervention. We encouraged States to follow the trend, from the first cycle, to submit mid-term reports. Moreover, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, on behalf of Brazil, Morocco, Paraguay, and another 60 States committed to this principle and four others through a joint statement delivered during the debate. UPR Info welcomes these pledges made by States and encourages cooperation between all Stakeholders for the third cycle.
