Universal Periodic Review Submission by VIVAT International
“The Universal Periodic Review (UPR) is a unique process which involves a review of the human rights records of all UN Member States. The UPR is a State-driven process, under the auspices of the Human Rights Council, which provides the opportunity for each State to declare what actions they have taken to improve the human rights situations in their countries and to fulfil their human rights obligations.” (From UN OHCHR Universal Periodic Review)
NGOs can check the human rights situation and submit the report for the review and attend the UPR Working Group sessions. VIVAT has been taking part of the review processes.
