*What is the UPR?The Universal Periodic Review (UPR) is one of the monitoring mechanisms of the United Nations Human Rights Council in which the human rights records of all 193 UN Member States is reviewed over a period of four and a half years. The mechanism is based on equal treatment for all countries and is the first international human rights mechanism to address all countries and all human rights.
UPR aims at promotion of human rights on the ground using a “naming and shaming” technique. That is, there is no serious punishment for the states, but the fact that their failures to protect human rights is repeatedly discussed in UPR sessions. All member states take part in each review session and examine all the aspects of the human rights situation in the country under review (SuR) offering recommendations to improve the situation. The SuRs are expected to follow the recommendations to enhance human rights in their territories.
The first round of UPR started from 2008 and ended in 2011 and the second round which started immediately afterwards ends in 2016. The third cycle starts in 2017 and continues to 2021. As stated earlier all countries are reviewed in the UPR cycles.
In addition to UN Members States, other stakeholders such as National Human Right Institutions (NHRIs) and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) also take part in the mechanism.
