Lesson Series 66: Universal Periodic Review

The Issue

The Universal Periodic Review, established by the UN General Assembly in 2006, is a process through which the human rights records of the United Nations’ member states can be reviewed and assessed. It is based upon human rights obligations and commitments expressed in the UN Charter and other international human rights instruments.

The process can be made use of by both states and concerned NGOs, to ensure a better outcome and realization of rights.
