Our initiatives at the Universal Periodic Review

The Universal Periodic Review (UPR) is an intergovernmental mechanism that examines the situation of all human rights, including the rights of the child, in all UN member states every four years. It holds three sessions per year; 14-16 states are examined per session. NGOs submit alternative information. States present the measures they have taken, their successes and challenges, and the review ends with recommendations that the state is supposed to implement for the next 4 years until the next review.
